|09.08.06||Netflix|| Knowing pretty much nothing about architecture (I took one architectural drawing class and pretty much only passed by fixing all of the autocad computers), I really only know Frank Gehry's work from a "oh that stands out" viewpoint. Most of the time it's cool... but i'm also reminded of this certain run back when i read comics of this huge space ship that was basically a big domino twice the height of the world trade center towers and how it just sort of parked in midtown manhattan and everybody hated it because it blocked out the sun for like half the city half the day. So I can't really imagine living next to a Gehry house, but it'd be pretty damn cool to be the one living in one.|
The doc is pretty interesting... if not really all that informative. Still, it gives a personality snapshot of the man, some of his history and inspiration, and the whole thing is loosely assembled in that Sydney Pollack way. I was entertained.
