The otherworldly landscapes of Dutch painter Hieronymus Bosch are tailor-made for the moving picture, because a panning shot in extreme close-up can pick up so many of his tiny, macabre details. When this documentary sticks to Bosch's florid imagery, lucidly explicated on the soundtrack by a team of art historians, it's fascinating. But director Pieter van Huystee, needing a story arc, punctuates the scholarly material with dry bureaucratic sequences in which five art historians try to organize a major retrospective of the painter's work for his hometown of Den Bosch in the Netherlands. The academics travel to Venice, Madrid, and Washington, D.C., to negotiate for loans of major works, but they're such buttoned-down personalities that their jet-setting fails to add any zip to the movie. As one historian points out, Bosch was consumed by the idea of moral choice and consequence, his characters suffering hideous fates for indulging their appetites; the primal drama of his work couldn't be further removed from the cold maneuvering of museum administrators. In English and subtitled Dutch, Spanish, and Italian.
