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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
