Whether you love art or not, you'll love Frank Mason
28 April 2011 | by user297257See all my reviews

Documentaries are usually thought provoking and informative, but this one is also uplifting. If you didn't have the pleasure of being touched by the genius of Frank Mason in mortal life, his spirit lives on in the frames of this beautiful and touching documentary that shares his joy of life and his masterful accomplishments in the art world. Beautiful photography and a balanced view of the elements of his personality keep the film moving. There's not a wasted frame. If you do have a interest in art, this film is a must, from casual observer to ardent student. When you leave, you'll feel like you knew this very special man, and I warn you that you'll see things with a painter's eye, whether you can capture that with a brush or not.
