    Art Movie Recommendations?

    I'm just looking for good films pertaining to art, documentary style. (historical stuff is great too)

    Just watched this film, thought it was pretty okay.

    Second algenpfleger's suggestion

    Local Color (2006)

    Art21 from PBS is also interesting, you may be able to find them at your local library.

    I enjoyed Goya's Ghosts. I thought it put Goya's life and work in its proper historical context. Within the next few weeks I will have the opportunity to view some of Goya's Disasters of War drawings at the Art Gallery of Alberta in Edmonton. Having seen the movie will add perspective to the drawings when I see them.

    My guilty secret is that I also enjoyed watching Art School Confidential.

    The movie about R Crumb is painful to watch but very well done. PBS did a series on american artists which is very well done, Andrew Wyeth and others.

    yeah R crumb is really good, and there are a couple movies or documentaries of famous artists like Frida, Warhole, Jackson, etc.
