A Piece of Art
30 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Stuart Cooper directs this look at Spanish artist Juan Genoves. And with him as composer is Paul Glass, who would collaborate with him again on their hugely successful "Overlord". Does that make this a precursor to "Overlord"? Despite appearing on that film's Blu-Ray as a special feature, no.

In many ways, this look at art is very much a piece of art itself. Rather than simply interview Genoves or talk about the man's work, Cooper used this film to showcase the art and make it dance, adding a new dimension that is not evident in the paintings themselves. This is an interesting take and it would be nice to know what Genoves thinks of Cooper's work.
