Time Out says
But director Jennifer Baichwal strives for more than just a film about an artist. She follows Burtynsky at work (mainly in China) but finds her own beauty in his subjects, whether she’s examining the grey, sprawling cityscape of Shanghai or the ghostly regions of the new Three Gorges dam. The film never entirely breaks free from Burtynsky’s gaze, and Baichwal’s avoidance of explanation is frustrating, but it’s undeniably beautiful and thoughtful.
