5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful film about art and artists
All Jake Auerbach's films are wonderful. Sympathetically made, allowing the artists to speak about themselves and other artists and their work. From the first picture and the first note of (the beautifully chosen) music, we are in another world. What strikes me is the humility of the artists (not quite so evident in the sculptors in "Rodin", I have to admit...) and the...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Suitable For Beginners.
People should be aware that there is no art instruction on this video even though one of the artists is a ringer for Alwyn Crawshaw. There is a small section on what brush to choose but no help on laying washes or scumbling. Just talking really.

All Jake Auerbach's films are wonderful. Sympathetically made, allowing the artists to speak about themselves and other artists and their work. From the first picture and the first note of (the beautifully chosen) music, we are in another world. What strikes me is the humility of the artists (not quite so evident in the sculptors in "Rodin", I have to admit...) and the good sense they speak. I've watched all the films now and would heartily recommend them to anyone, both as films about artists and as films in their own right.

These videos by Jake Auerbach are like the Alan Bennett Talking Head series where you feel that you are sitting in the room with the speaker. As a somewhat aged novice artist wrestling with my pencil etc this is a superb tonic on the bad days when you begin to wonder if you will ever move forward.

Very special. Excellent in identifying and exploring its subjects. Illuminating, richly informative and in many ways, entertaining. A good resource for building a rounded and complete sense of these remarkable artists.

5.0 out of 5 stars An essential film for anyone who enjoys art - making or viewing, 18 Oct 2012

This review is from: The Last Art Film [DVD] (DVD)
Clearly this is a review of the film itself, not the DVD, which I was lucky enough to see at the National Gallery in London. I am a son of two artists who only midway through life has really embraced the artistic impulse, and ask myself the question of whether the art I am making is relevant or derivative or just plain rubbish, unlike all my heroes' work.

This film made me trust in that impulse and believe in it. I won't say any more, other than "buy this film" and "buy it for all your friends!"

Excellent throughout. Thought provoking and stimulating - even if it could be said that it was slightly to long for the general viewer ( not myself )
