The quintessential Humphrey Bogart Film. Noir classic with the worlds greatest MacGuffin save for perhaps the briefcase in Pulp Fiction. Sam Spade is a hard boiled detective searching for a stolen statue. Before he finds it though, he'll have to deal with his fair share of evil masterminds, creepy henchmen, and double crossing dames.
Like many great things, this documentary make take some patience to enjoy, but it is well worth it. If you don't know of Andy Goldsworthy, then look him up first. Many of his natural sculptural works can only be experienced in photographs, but his work is now progressing to the point where it needs moving film to capture it. Goldsworthy is a contemporary genius, and this film showcases his work.
A Contemporary Genius? At first his works can be slightly underwhelming, but I think that perhaps its because they are so subtle and tap into such fundamental human concerns that they are a bit easy to take for granted. Goldsworthy is absolutely a genius and every time I see his works they excite me more and more.
If only every college freshman was required to read this book. Enjoyable and witty takes on everything from Entertaining to Wooing to Style. Tackling modern concerns with well-written throwback style although "not a cure all for flaccid character" but for those who "aspire to be perpetually dapper".
