Tim's Vermeer Regisserad av Teller
The movie, directed by Teller (of Penn & Teller) and written by him along with Penn Jillette (who is the onscreen and voice-over commentator), is as mechanical as the procedure it depicts. Telescoping, with a forced amiability, five years of tinkering into eighty minutes, the film reveals very little of the process that it documents. Jenison’s moments of scientific discovery are astonishing, wondrous—and brief; the rest of the movie seems like a stunt.

[I was excited to see the movie because] it’s about art and technology; and it investigates the possibility that a painter used optical devices to create glowing, mysterious images. In the process, it reawakens the controversy around David Hockney’s thesis in Secret Knowledge that many old masters were employing lenses and mirrors to render nature with unprecedented richness. I wasn’t disappointed. It was the most intellectual fun I’ve had at the movies in the last year.

[The movie’s resemblance to Jorge Luis Borges’ “Pierre Menard, Author of the Quixote”] actually points up the one thing “Tim’s Vermeer” doesn’t do in its hour and a half: it doesn’t concern itself with the aesthetic resonances of creating a Dutch Master’s work in the century of postmodern art. Given how juicy the movie is in and of itself, this elision rather makes one wish for a sequel.
