Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Each swipe covers the old painting and reveals a new composition. Watching this can be fascinating, even exciting. After all, it prompts a fundamental movie question: What happens next?
Fresh: The film is sketchy as biography, but it proves an aging artist can still crackle with the electricity of youth.
Fresh: A mesmerizing look behind the curtain at a magician at work, a man who creates his enchantments not with a deck of cards or puffs of smoke but rather paint, brushes, canvas and a giant squeegee.
Fresh: Gerhard Richter Painting artfully and convincingly immerses us into the world of one of the greatest, painting.
You can feel Richter's love of painting in this movie. Highly recommended for any painter out there.
Loved this movie
Watching Richter study his work was fascinating. His painting technique is ritual and as he says it is so fun. What a body of work, and a gentle soul. Great movie.
