Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Essential movie for all Philip Johnson fans. Very expensive, but since I haven't been able to visit the Glass House in New Canaan, CT, I dug deep and bought it. I wish it were longer in length (just 50 minutes plus with no bonus features), but it was edited well enough to cover all buildings on his property as well the thought process. DVD shows the glass house, the lakeside pavilion, the painting gallery, the sculpture gallery, the studio, the office, a climbing tower/folly and a wonderful building designed by Frank Stella used as a "sanctuary"- this building itself being a giant sculpture. Just a great doc, but a bit short in length for the price.

Johnson, the brillant architect that he was, is at his best in the "Eccentric Architect." Entertaining, engaging and informative, this DVD shows the human side of Johnson and how his extrordinary life shaped his rich architectural legacy.

I bought this DVD to prepare myself for a visit to the Glass House. It had everything I wanted to know about the Glass House plus the other buildings on Johnson's estate. It also documents Philip Johnson's wry humor and gives insights into his personality that are so necessary to understand his work. Very well done!
