Fresh: The film is sketchy as biography, but it proves an aging artist can still crackle with the electricity of youth. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Mar 29, 2012

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. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Jun 15, 2012

Fresh: Gerhard Richter Painting artfully and convincingly immerses us into the world of one of the greatest, painting. – Aaron Hillis, Village Voice, Mar 13, 2012

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.
