Movie Reviews

Keep a notebook next to you when you watch this DVD!!!
Loaay Ahmed | Kuwait | 09/22/2006

"Powerful, fast moving, comprehensive, well researched, resourceful, well filmed, comfortable to the eye, I could go on and on describing this brilliant work by PBS. This feature is like a tour to various artists' studios and exhibitions without leaving your chair. I loved it so much I ordered the 1st & 2nd seasons, which come together by the way on one DVD.

They should add this tagline to the DVD box: "Inspiration GUARANTEED!" What are you waiting for? Click 'Add to Shopping Cart' right now."
Really informative series

"I am a practicing artist and really enjoyed listening to other artists share themselves and their art in a very intimate and informative format.
Very disappointed

"I'm not sure what others who reviewed this DVD saw. Were we watching the same monologues? I'm very disappointed in this purchase. I was looking for innovation, creativity and technical skill among contemporary artists and perhaps some gems of wisdom they can share with the rest of us. I've taught art for thirty years, inspiring others to consider art as a career. If many of these people were my students, their "work" would have received poor critiques. Most of the artists in "Art: 21" have very distorted viewpoints and incomprehensible verbal and graphic communication skills. Many appear psychologically troubled. Few have the technical and observational skills one associates with great art. The exception is Josiah McElheny who demonstrates in clear terms a reverence for the past and a vision for the present and future. Do not waste your money on this DVD."
A Useful Tool, as well as Inspirational

"I've been using the PBS Art21 Series in my Art Appreciation and Introduction to Visual Arts classes for about four years now. There is no other tool I have that can make this subject as engaging as this series of interviews. Teaching in small towns in the midwest presents a particular challenge in finding nearby galleries or artists' studios to visit for a "live" interaction... so these fill that void. AND the best part - [...] has a substantial amount of teaching materials to go along with the videos!
Beyond that, I just find this series to be extremely inspirational and informative, being an artist myself."
