|From the film "Gerhard Richter Painting"|
Gerhard Richter Painting, a documentary by Corinna Belz now playing at the Roxie, is a feast for the eye and intellect, and a must-see for anyone interested in the painter's work or the creative process. For perhaps the first time ever, it really is exciting to watch paint dry- because then the viewer gets to see what happens next. Belz has given us an incredibly illuminating portrait of the man whom many the call the world's greatest living painter, how he works, and how he thinks about his art.
That's all you really need to know. See it.
