Movie Reviews

Sketches of Frank Gehry
M. Russell | California, USA | 01/13/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As an architect myself I found this DVD to provide a fascinating behind the scenes look at the creative process of one of the preeminant architects of our time. Sydney Pollack's layman approach to direction with hand-held camera work and one-on-one interviews gives a skillful perspective that demystifies Frank Gehry's growth as an architect. Gehry's early work at Vitra to the celebrated Museum in Bilbao Spain (which many have compared on equal footing with Frank Lloyd Wright's Falling Water house as the greatest commercial piece of architecture in the last 100 years ) are all celebrated here with plenty of video documentation. It is very clear early on in this documentary that Sydney Pollack was the right choice for the job of documenting Frank's ascension as one of the top designers practicing today. Sydney's friendship with Gehry clearly shows through and keeps Gehry's guard down so that we all benefit from this deeply personal look at how Gehry's early personal life struggles give way to a steely determination to become an architect and designer at the highest level of his trade. HIs firm's unique use of model making and computer generated explorations of each design are highlighted as they move from Frank's scribbled sketches to ultimate construction to stand the tests of time. I couldn't recommend this DVD higher !"
