Three of the segments are quite good, poignant & engaging. I'm younger than Swinton's generation but I also first encountered Berger through reading Ways of Seeing in a college art history class and it made a strong impact on me. Would rate this movie 4 stars but the second segment lacks focus . . .
Didn't know who this guy was going into this... still not entirely sure after watching it. The good thing is that Berger is easy to listen to and seems likable enough. That allows this doc to flow along without seeming too drawn out. Divided into four parts, this documentary seems to shed a light on absolutely nothing. It's not bad, mind you. Just a bunch of discussions and ideas to and from this artist John Berger.
