Fabulous! It is wonderful to learn of the artist and see him at work and hear his own words. If one cannot meet him personally this is a very close second. Such a gifted man.

If you enjoy Hockney and want to learn more from his own words, this is a great opportunity. I thought the filmmaker got in the way a few times (ie. framing shots to include himself, at the expense of his subject) but Hockney is a delight to listen to and watch.

Excellent portrait of the British painter David Hockney- it's especially interesting if you're a painter.

"You don't retire doing this. You just do it till you fall over." -- David Hockney

Bruno Wllheim spent three years filming the artist in order to give us this wonderful cinematic window into the creative life of a 70 year old master painter,.. at the height of his productivity !!
The bonus extras are also extraordinary.

I hope that Willheim makes more documentaries,.. giving insight into creative treasures such as David Hockney.
