Antonio Gaudí

4 out of 5 stars
Antonio Gaudí
The label “documentary” is a bit of a misnomer for this tone poem about Barcelona’s most famous architect. Teshigahara eschews the usual doc trappings—biographical info, voice-over narration, talking-head interviews—in favor of simply capturing the crazy beauty of Gaudí’s buildings and parks. That’s cool, but it can leave one wondering just what made Gaudí build his asymmetrical, organic buildings full of weird bulges and ripples.
