Crazy filmmaker decides cultural heritage needs pimping
This is the second so called 3D art documentary I have seen and it makes exactly the same horrible mistakes:
It turns fantastic painting masterpieces into cheap 3D playstation looking rubbish. Paintings have texture, brush strokes, light bouncing of them, THAT is what I want to see as realistic as possible, not this totally messed up ugly tech crap they throw at you unashamed of the culture rape they have just committed. You think you finally have a chance to get the perfect close-up look of the beauty, but in this you get weird distorted 3D versions of a flat painting. Who ever thought we wanted to see a 3D version or a masterpiece is crazy.
I'm here for the 3D sculptures, but we don't get a lot of time to watch those, for some reason they decided it needed a mediocre C level actor pretending to be a historical figure. This adds nothing, I could have done without any people, just a voice over. It adds nothing to see someone pretending this is some art soap.
This obviously is nothing more than a TV show presented as arty documentary, far too little actual art, horrible reproductions of the paintings and the stained glass. Another big problem with this is a lot of the 3D seem to be computer generated, made 3D in the edit. shots have a weird flicker, objects change shape and move around. It doesn't work when you fly over the dome and the top moves around. It is terribly distracting.
Their must have been a committee that decided to make paintings sexy for the masses and somehow it means destroying them and make them cheap tacky trash 3D versions. Please people, do yourself a favor, stop sexing up something that has stood on its own for over 500 years. We love those works AS THEY ARE! Why would you even consider re-imagining these paintings? This isn't bloody spiderman!
