Brilliant synopsis for such an uneven film. Imo, It falls completely in the last 40 minutes, forgetting the esential thoughts, digression and its focus on the perturbed creative process that marked the first part of the film. Possibly cause of the flaw: Obsession with similarity to History.
Pretty magnificent. Atmospheric settings, impressive costumes and some beautiful paintings populate the world of a rebellious mind - and a rebellious hand that few of his contemporaries could begin to grasp.
