Editorial Reviews

After surviving a DC-10 plane crash, filmmaker John Mullican asked his father how to heal his pain. "Go to your art," said artist Lee Mullican. "Because that's where the answers are." Intrigued, John began asking more questions about his infamous father's life on camera. What followed, no one could have predicted.

Take the emotional journey of a lifetime as you discover Lee Mullican, one of the greatest unknown and influential artists of the 20th century. Romance and betrayal, inspiration and tragedy, humor and pathos highlight this extremely moving and intimate portrait of a son's discovery of his father-- an artist-- who knew the greatest gift of life lay not with success or fame, but with the simple spiritual connection and healing while creating one's art.

Born in Oklahoma but choosing to look beyond the established New York modern art world after World War II, Lee Mullican found himself on the west coast, bringing the surrealist movement westward and embarking on an incredible journey as one of California's true modern artistic pioneers.

From the walls of major museums around the globe, to rare family archives and photography, through intimate interviews spanning over 20 years, and with never-before-seen footage of Lee's unique 'palette knife' technique, Finding Lee Mullican ignites the screen of a father's gift for a lost son by showing him the beauty and courage of living in the never-ending colors of his own art.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

An artist friend had asked me to watch this documentary. As someone who simply hasn't ever been engaged with the art world, I still found this film to be gripping. The Mullican family history is like one out of a fascinating fiction book with characters who are eccentric and enlightening. The subtle and poignant brilliance of Lee Mullican is spotlighted and well developed in this film. The more I watched, the more I wanted it to continue. Filmmaker John Mullican, presented his father's fantastical life in parallel with the hard reality of sickness and financial struggles. Side note: it's well worth mentioning the original score and additional music are brilliant, as they grip you as tightly as the visuals and storytelling. Two-word review: simply beautiful.

Any artist who's ever struggled with life and art will want to own Finding Lee Mullican. An epic tale, by the artist's son, that is both sweeping and intimate reveals the family's history and secrets as well as the genius behind the man. A particularly touching and sometimes amusing view of the challenges all artists face in realizing their dreams. Complete with "who's who" interviews from the art world as well as the entire Mullican family, this is a moving story of one of the century's most brilliant and underrated visual artists. I was fortunate enough to catch it at the Sante Fe Film Festival.
