(aka "My Architect: A Son's Journey")

 

directed by Nathaniel Kahn
USA
2003

 

 I have always been a fan or architecture and art, but claim to know nothing of any depth about either. I found "My Architect" to be an illuminating documentary on the life of one of the most revered American craftsmen of the last half century, Louis Kahn. He died suddenly in 1974 in a bathroom in New York's Penn Station. His legacy is a collection of monumental and inspiring buildings including the Salk Institute in La Jolla, California; the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, Texas and the capital building in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Essentially Khan led a very sad existence filled with the hubris of the human condition. The contrariness of his work and life make for a fascinating exploratory film. Notable references from I.M. Pei and other contemporaries as well as his family give an in-depth look at the constraints of the man - his inspirations and his probable regrets. An exemplary film showing beauty and misery. out of

Comments:

Very decent image from New Yorker - not HD sourced, but sharp with excellent color balance. Audio is original 2.0 and totally adequate. Two of the extra features are marvelous - 20:00 + minutes worth of a "Q + A" with the director Khan and a stunning 12 page color booklet with fold-out pages showing Khan and his architecture. Solid DVD package from New Yorker! We recommend! out of
