Hockney fans- rejoice,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: David Hockney: A Bigger Picture (PAL with Subtitles) (DVD)
Shown first on BBC1 on their 'Imagine' series, and irrespective of whether you saw it then or not, if you love Hockney's painting, this is definitely worth purchacing as a keepsake. I have laready watched it once and am sure will do so again in the years to come. You see a great painter, in the act of painting, back to the place where he started from, at ease, and full of enthusiasm again. I doubt another filmmaker will get the access that Bruno Wolheim had, and given that he spent 3 years filming Hockney, and although the DVD is 8 mins. longer than the version shown on TV, I am sure there will be scope for a longer version sometine in the future. Hockney is a painter who, both in his painting, and in conversation, teaches you to rub your tired eyes, and see the world around you afresh and to take delight in looking. Like Matisse, he understands there is endless pleasure to be had in colour and forms. This DVD is like meeting a sage who shows you 'the way'.
