If you're a fan of Goldsworthys work, then I would strongly recomend buying this. I saw it at a cinema (arts cinema) and was blown away. He's a very down to earth, 'real' artist. His work is simple, beautiful and strong.
This film really invites and draws you into the world of Andy Goldsworthy. It's interesting, and visually stimulating. Highly recomended.

Wonderful, poetic—a truly beautiful film. Andy Goldsworthy is an artist who works with nature—using things he finds: twigs, bits of icicle, stones—to make amazing sculptures that sometimes don’t last a day. The film follows him as he makes some of these sculptures, and talks about his art. It is a thoughtful, reflective film and parts of it are almost like a meditation. What the film achieves is not only an introduction to Goldsworthy's art, but a reminder of the beauty of nature. You start looking for Goldsworthy's art in nature and sometimes find that what you're looking at is nature itself.

Format: DVD
As the jacket proclaims, this film is "Gorgeously shot and masterfully edited," and, yes, it is mesmerizingly beautiful. The timelessness that we perceive in stoic rock and in the unceasing ebb and flow of water frames the ephemeral works from Goldsworthy's hands so that in their very ephemeralness they point to eternity.
And so the beauty of his compositions haunt us with just a touch of melancholy woven in--or in the words of Matthew Arnold from "Dover Beach":
Listen! you hear the grating roar
Of pebbles which the waves draw back, and fling,
At their return, up the high strand,
Begin, and cease, and then again begin,
With tremulous cadence slow, and bring
The eternal note of sadness in.
At one point near the end of the film Goldsworthy says that "Words do their job, but what I'm doing here says a lot more." As a wordsmith myself I take no offense and not for a moment do I think him immodest because the combination of form and time and change and texture and color and composition that Goldsworthy painstakingly and intuitively creates, is indeed something more than mere words can say.
At another point he remarks on "What is here to stay...and what isn't." That is his theme.
I think that artists sometime in the twentieth century became acutely aware of how ephemeral even the greatest works of art are compared to the vast expanse of cosmic time; and so they began to reflect this understanding by composing works that were deliberately ephemeral. The idea was, that by emphasizing how short-lived are even the mightiest works of humans, a sense of the timelessness of art would be expressed.
Perhaps part of the effectiveness of Goldsworthy's work is in this sort of expression.

This is a stunningly beautiful piece of cinema.
It seams to capture the essence of Andy Goldworthys work better than I could have hoped for.
I stumbled into the cinema quite by chance when this was on and was so glad I did...the scene with the sheep made me cry.
Beautiful.

Format: DVD
A wonderfully shot film. The editing and visuals are excellent, as is the way the film is structured. Goldsworthy speaks (less than eloquently) about his work, and that's the only interpretation we get. It would have been useful to have had someone speak about the historical context (land art, etc) and his criticical reception, and his relationship to the historic concern of British artists with the unseen/weather-altered landscape. The modernist/minimalist "plinky plonky" music is often annoying. However, I shall certainly be watching this again.
There are also around 50 minutes of extra short films on this US disc, one nearly 20 minutes long. Let's hope they make it to the British DVD release.
The over-compression used on this DVD disc is unsatisfactory; "jaggies" and "zipper effects" abound on the main feature. You may not notice them much if you watch from across-the-room on a TV, but you certainly will if you sit in front of your PC and watch it from within a couple of feet. Since the original was shot on film, and DVD compression standards have been around a while now, there's really no excuse for this defect.
