the finest documentary i've seen about an artist
6 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film makes it all seem to simple: an overview of the artist, and a discussion with him about his work and what inspires him. This is simple, yet i've never seen it done so well. This is the documentary that I wish could have been made about a hundred other artists from Michaelangelo to Van Gogh. Not knowing much about Francis Bacon's personality, I was surprised that he was so candid in the interviews which accounts for the greatest part of this documentary's success. The film itself is photographed and edited with the perfect balance of style that accentuates (not distracts from) its subject and a casual relaxed pacing.
