While I might have enjoyed the documentary more if it had delved more into who Norman Rockwell was as a person and his psyche, it is nevertheless an enjoyable little film--a gentle little show about a great artist. The production of this film seemed to coincide with a newer appreciation for the work of Rockwell. Now, after years of being seen as 'just a nice illustrator', he was finally being seen as a fine artist--and this struggle within him was also a major theme in the film. It also was, for the most part, a rather conventional documentary-style biography. You get to see lots of his works, meet some of his models and hear folks wax poetic about the man--all pretty much what you would expect. Well worth seeing and a nice celebration of a great artist. If you don't believe me, go see one of his exhibits--seeing them up close and seeing the reactions of the other patrons will convince you there is MUCH more to his work than meets the eye.
