Sketches of Frank Gehry

Longtime Hollywood director Sydney Pollack took a break from the corporate movie machine to shoot this intimate 2005 profile of his friend Frank Gehry, whose looping, otherworldly architecture has both enthralled and alienated people in Europe and the U.S. The on-screen title is “Sketches of Frank Gehry by Sydney Pollack,” and the movie is fascinating partly because the director—who recently hit artistic rock bottom with The Interpreter—seems to be pondering his own work as he looks over Gehry's shoulder. Critics, clients, and colleagues all weigh in on the architect, but Pollack is more interested in the mysteries of the creative process, and his studies of Gehry's buildings, deftly edited by Karen Schmeer, capture their dramatic sense of movement and resolution. PG-13, 83 min.
