Summary, etc.:
Frederick Wisemańs NATIONAL GALLERY takes the audience behind the scenes of a London institution, on a journey to the heart of a museum inhabited by masterpieces of Western art from the Middle Ages to the 19th Century. NATIONAL GALLERY is the portrait of a place, its way of working and relations with the world, its staff and public, and its paintings. In a perpetual and dizzying game of mirrors, film watches painting watches film.. Official Selection at the Cannes Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, and the New York Film Festival. Nominated for Best Documentary Film at the C©♭sar Awards.. "Indeed, hés Americás foremost practitioner of documentary-as-metaphor, building sweeping arguments of small details.́ ́Ben Kenigsberg, ́This is one of Wisemańs richest and most thought-provoking films, and easily one of his best.́ ́Budd Wilkins, Slant Magazine
