An interesting overview
20 October 2016 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

The venue might have had a lot to do with liking "Picasso and Braque Go To The Movies" (I'm wondering how accessible this would've been had I not watched it in art class), but even so, it was fascinating hearing how cinema and their work were linked, as well as the origins of cubism. The footage is well curated and goes nicely with the offered commentary. And it makes for a good overview of cubism itself.

I can imagine this coming off very arty to some, but it's also one of the breeziest documentaries I've seen. And it helps to have Scorsese bookending the film with his thoughts on the matter.

7/10
