Sketches of Frank Gehry

type
  • Movie
genre

In a love letter to the iconoclast architect (the Walt Disney Concert Hall), Jackson Pollack mixes a pleasant cocktail of building montages, Gehry razzing his own work (”That is so stupid looking, it’s great!”), and celeb interviews. But despite beautiful imagery and Michael Eisner hilariously likening an ice rink to breasts, Sketches of Frank Gehry remains just that: a glimpse of a storyteller through structure, with no real story to tell. EXTRAS In a chat with director Alexander Payne, Pollack admits how little he knew about architecture before filming. C+Timothy Gunatilaka
