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.
