  • Delivers on the promise of its title. It shows us the world's most famous living painter, who turned 80 in February, at work with greater intimacy than any other film portrait of a contemporary artist provides. show more

  • The man we meet is intelligent and good-humored. "They do what they want," he says with a shrug, indicating a set of just-completed canvases. "I planned something different." show more

  • Mostly the movie is about process and perspective. Through the documentary lens, Richter's enigmatic paintings speak to us. show more
