Storyline

CoSM The Movie is a magical new kind of documentary experience, leading audiences on an enriching and sense-heightening journey into the visionary art cosmos of world-renowned painter Alex Grey. Grey is our guide on a cinematic pilgrimage through the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors gallery in New York City, where his vividly rendered depictions of human anatomy and transcendental imagery reflect the universal human experience with birth, death, family, love, and enlightenment as the unfolding iconic narrative. Fusing the power of music with stunning cinematography, director Nick Krasnic channels the raw power of Grey's art into a potent film odyssey that captures the essence of this unique sacred space, and offers rare, personal insight from one of the most significant artists of our time.

Record of an amazing place is not as good as being there and maybe lost on you if you've never been
24 December 2007 | by dbborroughsSee all my reviews

The film is a guided tour of the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors located on 27th Street in Manhattan. The space is a gallery of the work of Alex Grey. Its a small space that I stumbled upon by accident when I was looking for what turned out to be a related gallery showing the work of Jerry Garcia. The Chapel is an over powering, hypnotic and trippy experience that overwhelms you. Whether you like Grey's work or not, there is no denying its has a visceral effect on you. Having only been there once I have not forgotten the place. The film Alex Grey: Chapel of Sacred Mirrors is essentially Grey explaining his paintings and their arrangement in the chapel. Its a detailed explanation of what he was trying to do with each painting and he also points out little details you may not have caught.Its a moving record of several rooms of paintings.

I'm of mixed emotions about the film. certainly its a great record of the place and a font of wisdom as to what it all 'means". However its way more information than I really wanted.I didn't need to know about "every" piece. I'm also disappointed that it doesn't go into more detail about the building of the place. There is something special about the Chapel itself, however some of the specialness has been lost in the telling.

Would I recommend the film? Not unless you're a fan of Grey's art work or if you've ever been to the Chapel. With out being one or the other the odds are you're going to be hopelessly at sea.
