Movie Reviews

A breathtaking trip in time and mood
Mayo Quin | Houston, TX United States | 08/02/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The haunting work of Turner is explaineed and beautifully presented in this video. History comes alive in the art of Turner, as well as the narration. It's breathtaking, and a great gift for anyone who loves art or history. One does not need an esoteric background to be mesmerized by Turner's legacy."

"A very well done overview of JMW Turner's work and history of the man. It gives the viewer a good indication of just how much impact this artist had and still has in the field."
