Surviving Picasso

We watched a recording of Surviving Picasso off of cable. I thought that this was an interesting and somewhat entertaining movie. Because I have a limited knowledge of art history, I can't tell for sure if there is any accuracy in this movies portrayal of Picasso was at all accurate.

Anthony Hopkins does a wonderful job of portraying him as a brilliant and self-centered man. His relationships with the women who surround him are almost painful in how psychologically abusive they are. On the other hand you are allowed to see the charismatic circumstances that he creates that draw so many people to him.

I found it to be the equal of Pollack. That is on my scale of 1-100, I rate it a 77.
