Absolute masterpiece..I wish they had done more
on December 1, 2011
Superbly filmed, edited and scored documentary,from beginning to end, on one of America's greatest but least known geniuses. If you don't know anything about Louis Sullivan this is without a doubt THE place to start. I've read a few books on the "beloved master", as Frank Lloyd Wright called him, but even his superb prose pales and shrinks to nothing beside his buildings and ornamentation. His life was tragic but he was unshaken and noble until the end. I was literally in tears towards the end of the film.
The only improvement I could see would be a director's cut with more interview material and more images of his buildings.
This was truly a documentary worthy of its subject.
