[An] entertaining documentary biography.
An astute and insightful documentary.
A fascinating look into his prolific creativity.
Hockney is the definitive exploration of one of the most significant artists of his generation. For the first time, British painter David Hockney has given access to his personal archive of photographs and film, resulting in an unparalleled visual diary of his life. Featuring extensive footage and interviews with the artist himself, as well as enlightening anecdotes from his friends, subjects, colleagues, and contemporaries—including Arthur Lambert, Celia Birtwell, and Ed Ruscha—Randall Wright’s portrait lovingly examines the artist’s impact and craft. Inspiring, perceptive, and delightfully candid, Hockney is a unique and accessible view of the unconventional artist, who, at 78, still reaches new peaks of popularity worldwide—and is as charismatic as ever.
