29 seconds movie is just way to short. Would have liked to see more.
Good subject, wrong actor.
They should have used an unknown for this, because instead of some form of Picasso, all I can see is Antonio Banderas with a lot of makeup. This would have been interesting if someone else was used so the story would have been the main character.
Like the man, great with flaws.
I actually have enjoyed this season much more than the Einstein Season 1. I love how they move back and forth between young and old, and while sometimes it is confusing trying to keep up, it does require the viewer to pay close attention. I also enjoyed how they show Picasso warts and all. Basically, he was a gifted person, with a lot of moral flaws. Would he be able to exist today in the #metoo world? Perhaps not.
Can we seperate the private person from the artist? That is a quesiton we are being asked to do today. I am not sure. That , to me, is the overall idea of Genius: Picasso: When all is said and done, what survives is the art.
Yes, Antonio Banderas takes an episode or two to get used to, as I kept thinking of Puss and Boots as Picasso...but that is quibbles. The look and feel is excellent. The sets , the artwork, and the cast are outstanding.
