Leonardo Live

By mmistry

Loved the fact that I could see so many of DaVinci's paintings all together. However the naration was too hurried and rather superficial. I was hoping it would be more in the vein of what Sister Wendy does when she talks about art.. Disappointing on the whole.

Leonardo Live

The art work was great. Too bad there weren't volume adjustments so you could turn down the music which was totally annoying (as if we needed a theme like starwars). Also the intro photography and closing was really annoying - like someone driving up to the front of the painting and at the last moment veering away so you never really saw it. Totally repetitive - here's what we're going to show you - here's what it is - here's what we showed you. they wasted at least 5-10 valuable minutes that could have been spent on talking more about the paintings or showing us the wonderful drawings associated with the paintings. And the interviewers - ugh! How many times did they have to ask if this was just an old great or would today's culture appreciate it. And they interrupted the speakers. I was really looking forward to this and appreciate seeing the paintings as I won't be in London during the show but the film was AWFUL. More could have been done with this.

Fascinating

Leonardo Live was a trip through a special exhibition of Leonardo Da Vinci's works of art. The artwork is stunning and being able to see so much of his work while hearing about his life and his patrons was well worth the ticket price. I enjoyed the educational aspects associated with setting up this exhibit and the restoration process. My only issue with the presentation was that the two presenters interviewed numerous people who gave their thoughts on the art. This would have been more palatable if the people interviewed had all been authorities rather than people simply giving their opinions on the works. Some of the people being interviewed seemed annoyed by the interview (or perhaps the interviewer) which further decreased the need for this element in the film.

behind the scenes

This was a great behind the scenes presentation on how an exhibition is inspired and brought to life. From what pieces are to be shown and how they are to be displayed. All the details we do not even consider. Learned a little bit about Leonardo . Great variety of artists and scholars who give their perspective on his paintings. This is a good lecture for both art noives and experts. This is for adults. I would recommend this.

Art Live

Wonderful to get a chance to see this exhibit from London - the only way, really, for those who couldn't travel across the ocean. Stunning close-ups of Leonardo's paintings on the big screen, and opportunity to see both versions of the "Madonna of the Rocks" in the same room together for the first time was instructive and marvelous. The Regal Fenway Cinema did quite a poor job, however, having started the film at least 20 minutes before the start time, with the lights on, and then failing to turn the lights on for the exit of the audience at the end. With many elderly patrons in the theater, this could have been a disaster. What were they thinking?
