GERHARD RICHTER PAINTING (THURSDAY 9 PM)
MAY 3. 9 PM. (2011 Corinna Belz) Germany. A thrilling document of Richter’s creative process, juxtaposed with intimate conversations (with his critics, his collaborators, and his American gallerist Marian Goodman) and rare archive material. From our fly-on-the-wall perspective, we watch the 79-year-old create a series of large-scale abstract canvasses. “Fascinating. Mr. Richter remains an excellent subject, serious and purposeful but also unexpectedly good-natured.” (Rachel Saltz, The New York Times) 97 min. Blu Ray.
