Interesting, friendly documentary seems a little light, 16 August 2006
Author: D A from SoFla, UsA

Director Sydney Pollack follows around his old buddy Frank with a hand-held (and an extra cameraman) on a short, shallow, but productive and friendly discussion on Mr. Gehry's architectural prowess. In short, this man is singlehandedly credited by some as helping modernize and accentuate structural design in ways that tower over any other modern architect, making him somewhat of a mythic figure in the field. Despite my, and most viewers, complete lack of knowledge on the subject, one look at almost any of Gehry's many houses or buildings will confirm that his decisions to completely fly against the visual conventions of the past does land him in an utterly unique group from a design standpoint. However, the fact that many opponents feel the need to invalidate Gehry's domination of the field, credited, many believe, simply because of his overwhelming desire to be different, do bring up interesting, and thankfully covered points. I feel that despite the kinship and lavish praise heaped onto this fascinating builder throughout, this sketch neither confirms nor denies Gehry's relevance and true merit, but instead inspires with the simple majesties of various materials erected in all of their uncompromising, asymmetrical grandeur. To appreciate this type of architecture is besides the point; to appreciate the symbol behind the unique structures though, is invaluable.
