I stream art documentaries on Netflix while I work. (Having something playing on the 2nd monitor is acceptable at my job.) I've watched enough that the top three recommendations at the bottom of the page are almost always films I've already seen, but I want to keep this habit up another month!
I've seen this
, but it's been a few years and my wishes are specific.
I like inspiring, nuanced documentaries of creative people, especially when there is time to sink into their work. Good ones I've seen recently: Rivers and Tides, Never Sorry, Beauty is Embarrassing, Gerhard Richter, Absolute Wilson, Cutie and the Boxer, Gregory Crewdson.
Not keen on film adaptations or interviews with super famous people. Drew Struzan is an amazing illustrator, but the documentary about him was fawningly fannish, and I couldn't finish it.
It's another 3 or 4 weeks until I can get back to painting, and it really feeds my art heart to watch artists do their thing. What's the good stuff out there?
Netflix preferred, but any site without ad breaks is fine.
