Editorial Reviews

Blondes, superheroes and Mickey
Mouse with his drastically enlarged
comic subjects, Lichtenstein caused a
commotion in the art world of the 1960s. In 1964, a New York Times headline read: 'One of the Worst Artists in America.' Since then, the American artist who died in 1997 has come to rank as one of the greatest icons of pop art next to Andy Warhol. Benday dots became his trademark, his artworks seemingly anonymous, mechanical reproductions in the age of mass media, Disneyland and billboards. Chris Hunt met the likable
artist in his New York studio and found
himself face to face with a great painter
as well as a 'closet classicist.'

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have! October 8, 2000
By schwank
Format:VHS Tape
This video is one of the best art films I have viewed in a long time, awesome! This film shows Roy at work and the viewer is introduced to the complexity behind the art of Roy Lichtenstein. This is a must have for any artist or art teacher who is interested in modern art and one of the greatest American artists ever!!

You know you are in for an interesting documentary on Pop Art artist Roy Lichtenstein when the "Menu" appears and the soundtrack consists of Duane Eddy's "Rebel Rouser" and a Germanic take on Barrett Strong's hit "Money (that's what I want)". And the 51 minutes pass quickly.

This 51-minute film (it wasn't shot on video) was made in 1990 - so its 20 years old- but is making its debut on DVD in the wonderful Arthaus series imported by Naxos. You can tell it is not new because Lichtenstein was "preparing" to do his largest mural for the 42nd Street subway station in New York and you can see what the OLD 42nd Street station looked like. There is lots of interview footage of Lichtenstein explaining his art and why he got into recreating comic strips.

Lichtenstein's art is nearly always fun and very accessible for the average guy to appreciate. This film shows this. The bonus features include a photo gallery. Also the film comes with either an English soundtrack or one in German. (But you still get Duane Eddy and "Money"!)

I have a personal interest in art history and viewed this documentary twice, once alone and once with my elementary and middle grade homeschooled children as an art history lesson. Anyone interested in the works of Roy Lichtenstein and the Pop Art movement would love this documentary, certainly art students and artists will also love it. This documentary makes art history accessible to the layperson as well, due to the fine job of the interviewer and the director.

In this documentary Roy Lichtenstein is interviewed and discusses his life and art work, what influenced him, where his ideas came from, how his art adapted and how and why it changed over time. He discusses the Pop Art movement, a bit, mostly how he was one of a number of artists making art that was then called Pop Art. Also interesting is Lichtenstein tells what different art critics have said about different phases of his art and he shares his personal reactions to their statements. Additionally some footage of people criticizing and discussing his artwork is included, almost in a "he said, she said" manner which makes the viewer think about how sometimes what others say about an artist's work may be a bit off or just wrong. Contrary to what non-artists may think, artists do usually have a reason or an inspiration behind what they create. Lucky for us this documentary allows us into the brilliant mind of Roy Lichtenstein.

My children and I were both thrilled that this documentary also showed the artistic process with Lichtenstein narrating his process and demonstrating for the viewer, the stages of how and why he produces his famous Benday dot comic book type large artworks.

3.0 out of 5 stars worth watching January 27, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This dvd program lasts nearly an hour and features footage of Roy Lichtentein at work in his studio and answering questions in a one on one interview format. The viewer gains a deeper understanding about how he selects his subject matter and how he goes about transfering ideas to canvas. RL explains and demonstrates his use of an opaque projector
in order to enlarge images and there are shots of his work throughout the program. There are also numerous interview snippets with dealers, critics and fellow artists about his career and influence. I'm certain I will re-watch this several more times.
