Sketches of Frank Gehry
Cert: 12A Year: 2005 Length: 84 mins
"Sydney Pollack's gentle and rapt documentary about his friend Frank Gehry, the superstar architect who designed the Guggenheim museum in Bilbao, is an intelligent piece of partisan adoration - although he gives some space to Gehry's detractors, too. Interviewees include architecture mandarin Philip Johnston and big capitalist honchos like Disney's Michael Eisner and super-agent Michael Ovitz, all of whom have commissioned status-symbol buildings from Gehry.
It is rare to see so many rich businessmen interviewed in a movie which isn't a Michael Moore-style exposé. Gehry is shown cutting bits off a cardboard model to design a building, and the Blue Peter-y origin of some of his buildings is hilariously detectable. But the majesty of his Bilbao masterpiece is obvious."
PETER BRADSHAW, THE GUARDIAN
