Genius of Modern Theater
Allan J. Cronin | Alameda, CA | 01/12/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you don't know Robert Wilson's work you don't know what genius you are missing. Many people know him principally through his work with Philip Glass on 'Einstein on the Beach'. But there is indeed a great deal more.

This is a balanced overview of the work of one of the finest and most innovative dramatists of the 20th Century. His is a theater of images and artistic collaboration.

Wilson has worked with the likes of Philip Glass, Tom Waits, William Burroughs, Lou Reed, Jessye Norman and many more. He has written plays, produced other's plays, produced opera and worked with sculpture and other visual media.

This is a fascinating, sensitive and unique artist whose work deserves to be better known. Despite his work being in demand and receiving critical acclaim there is relatively little written about him. He is hardly a househould name. And this film does an admirable job of showing us the depth and breadth of this man's work. Hopefully it will make him more familiar to the public at large and insert his name into the common discourse.

A great film which does justice to a great man."
