The NATIONAL GALLERY
December 26 - 30, 2014

(one showing a day)

The subject of veteran documentarian Frederick Wiseman’s most recent film is the stately museum that rises at the northern end of London’s Trafalgar Square. Like most of Wiseman’s work, the movie is at once specific and general, fascinating in its pinpoint detail and transporting in its cosmic reach. It’s about art and process, money and mystery, and all the many, many people gazing and gawking and, at times, lining up to see a blockbuster show. Turning the camera on works of art and the people who steer the distinguished London complex, the grand old man of hands-off documentaries studies paintings and bears witness to staff meetings, curatorial discussions and gallery talks; some of the most engrossing of its behind-the-scenes sections expose various conservation efforts. With cool intelligence and a steady camera, Wiseman’s tour of the museum (filmed 2011 - 2012 during major exhibitions for Titian, Leonardo Da Vinci and J.M.W. Turner) includes views of its masters, pausing to look, but also to listen to what becomes a museum-wide conversation on form, content and context. As is customary for a Wiseman documentary, the film lacks voice-over, talking-head interviews or explanatory text, including identifiers but it’s possible to enjoy this film just for its privileged three-hour virtual tour of the distinguished London complex where public perception is largely restricted to public spaces. (NR, 181 mins.)
