I've been on a movie kick, watching and rewatching films and documentaries about art. A must see is from one of my favorite people... "F for Fake" (1973) is the last major film by the man who himself became a household name through a form of deception. In this film essay/documentary Orson Welles explores the world of a master art forger.
Here at BetterWall we are re-watching "The Shock of the New", the classic documentary about the development of modern art. It premiered on British TVs in 1980 and came over the pond in 1981, on PBS of course -- the U.S. home of Benny Hill.
Amy Adams wins Golden Globe for title role in Margaret Keane film. She's also nominated for a leading actress BAFTA trophy, coming up on Feb. 8. Here's hoping for a fellow Coloradan! An enduring memory growing up in the suburbs in the 60s and 70s were the freaky big eyes staring at me from the walls of friends' homes.
