A BIGGER SPLASH
Directed by Jack Hazan
1974, USA, 106 minutes, documentary/fiction
A Bigger Splash dispenses with talking-heads to create an innovative film about the English-born, California-based artist David Hockney that honors its subject through creative risk. It is a time capsule of gay life in the 1970s, an honest depiction of male romance, and an invaluable view of art history in action: Hockney is seen putting the finishing touches on his masterpiece Portrait of an Artist (Pool with Two Figures), which sold for $90.3 million at auction in 2018, setting a record for a living artist. The film is a record of artistic creation that is itself a work of art.
