Editorial Reviews

An acclaimed photographer with the eye of a filmmaker, Gregory Crewdson has created some of the most gorgeously haunting pictures in the history of the medium. His meticulously composed, large-scale images are stunning narratives of small-town American life moviescapes crystallized into a single frame. While the photographs are elaborately staged with crews that rival many feature film productions, Crewdson takes inspiration as much from his own dreams and fantasies as the worlds of Alfred Hitchcock, David Lynch, Edward Hopper and Diane Arbus. Crewdson s imagery has also infiltrated the pop culture landscape from inimitable Six Feet Under ads to Yo La Tengo album art. Shot over a decade with unprecedented access, Gregory Crewdson: Brief Encounters beautifully bares the artist s process and it s as mesmerizing and riveting as the images themselves.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Artist June 1, 2013

I was so glad to stumble across this documentary, lest I had gone the rest of my life never having heard of this amazing photographer.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've been looking forward to this... August 24, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've been a follower of Crewdson's work, in particular his ambitious "Beneath the Roses" project, and was hoping that this documentary about him wouldn't somehow disappoint -- I'm happy to say that it delivered, for me, on all levels: I learned more about the man and his development as an artist, I learned more about the way he develops his image concepts in "pre-production," and I learned more about his shooting methods.

We viewers are fortunate that the filmmaker had access to Crewdson over the course of a number of years, so there is a very real sense of process and development, rather than the compression of a rather large story into a manageable number of shooting days.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Insight July 12, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A great glimpse into Crewdson's work from behind the scenes shoots, to interviews with him and friends/colleagues. A must see for any fan or anyone interested in contemporary photography. Also, very inspiring to see how his work and process evolved over time for a photographer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Engaging look at the process of making art July 9, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Shows Crewdson's obsessive commitment and his intense attention to detail. It's a closeup look at an artist at work that we rarely get to see.

3.0 out of 5 stars I thought it would be better September 3, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I had seen previews for this and read raving reviews. I was looking forward to this documentary, but ultimately found it not overwhelming. It wasn't bad, perhaps it just wasn't my style of show that I can follow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well done documentary June 15, 2014

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's a little dark and disquieting, like his works, but a must see for anyone that has viewed them close up and wonders about the process.
