Highest recommendation for Goya- Crazy Like a Genius
Ardine | Columbus OH | 07/20/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Insightful and compelling commentary and critique of Goya's lifetime of work. His vision is unique yet common to every man. He speaks what we cannot say. The works chosen for the film are stunning and powerful, and seem as fresh today as when they were painted. Even if you know nothing about painting and art making you will come away from this film moved by the experience."

"It is interesting to watch this film after reading Rober Hughes' "Goya".
Mr. Hughes is not only a good writer but excellent actor,particularly after his close to deah experience.

His analysis of Goya is concise and perceptive, every now and then, he
interjected some comments of Leon Golub, a great painter of his own right,
which certainly give a new live to Goya's spirit.

"I was never a bit fan of Goya, but work from Robert Hughes, possibly our finest living art critic, is always a treat, and this documentary is no exception. More than just a survey of Goya's work, we take a journey into the life and mind of the artist. Hughes does his usual fine job of enlightening and entertaining. Better still, I emerged at the end of the DVD with a better appreciation of Goya. I'd consider this a must for collectors of art history documentaries."
