But thanks to Daniel Raim's lucid and concise Oscar nominated documentary about Robert Boyle, one of Hollywood's best art directors, a general audience now has a chance to savor what these masters of their craft have contributed. Boyle tells stories about working on everything from Hitchcock's "North by Northwest," "The Birds" and "Marnie" to "Fiddler on the Roof." Boyle is quite eloquent and witty in explaining his craft, and others, including fellow art director Henry Bumstead, are also interviewed. Raim has done an imaginative job of editing production storyboards and sketches with photographs and film segments so that we 'get' what the production designer actually does.

Amazing well made documentary
24 February 2001 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

This is an amazing documentary about the work of Robert Boyle. The interviews are always interesting and never go off the point. Film footage is always there for explanation and the music which goes along the film is perfect. After this documentary, one can see what kind of great contribution Robert Boyle gave to cinema. Bravo!!!
