  • A stimulating detective story that holds you in thrall. show more

  • The most intriguing question it raises is whether our feelings about Vermeer may be changed by the likelihood of him having used optics of one sort or another. The answer is yes, unavoidably, but not necessarily for the worse. show more

  • The connection between art and technology is explored in an entertaining and accessible way in Tim's Vermeer, a documentary that demonstrates how a savvy and dedicated amateur with sufficient resources was able to create a remarkable likeness of a great 17th century painting. show more

    "As someone who can draw and paint" Congratulations on your innate abilities which do not (apparently) include cinema nor paying attention.

    As someone who can draw and paint, I found this film very frustrating and kinda insulting. It took 8 hours for the idiots in the film to paint a simple painting of a jug using the mirror contraption that this guy has invented. It would have taken me like 90 minutes tops to do the same thing.
