”Mr. Turner” (2014)
Director: Mike Leigh
With: Timothy Spall
the Film about the british 1800-Dutch painter William Turner (1775-1851) is one of the best and visually most seductive portraits of artists I've seen. The eccentric Turner is credibly depicted as a repulsive man and innovative, sublime landscape painter.

Isabelle Adjani is almost too good looking as the young, excellent Camille Claudel (1864-1943), an assistant to the famous sculptor Auguste Rodin. But Adjanis performance is growing in line with claudel's ambitions, rough crushed in a patriarchal society, with madness as a result.Julie Taymor instructs Salma Hayek during the shooting of ”Frida” Photo: Instagram

A filmporträtt of the colorful mexican artist Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) will be automatically dramatically. A destiny characterized the illness and pain, but as much of the fight for love and private artistic expression. I remember Salma Hayek as cast in the lead role.Ed Harris as Jackson Pollock in ”Pollock,” Photo: Demmie Todd/Brant-Allen/Kobal/RE

Actionmålaren Jackson Pollock (1912-1956) became AMERICA's first konststjärna. And I have rarely seen such a convincing rollgestaltning as Ed Harris. He splashing and throwing color into a trance in the portrait of a hopeless drunkard and callous but innovative artist.

It feels that the film is about the graffiti artist Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988) is made by another artist, Julian Schnabel, while he is hot on the 80's art scene in New York city. Basquiats self-destructive life but also hard work depicted unusually trustworthy and respectful.

Derek Jarman's acclaimed film about Caravaggio (1571-1610) has a sumptuous aesthetics colored by barockmålarens dramatic compositions and ljuskontraster. Caravaggio was most likely bi - or homosexual, and broke all sorts of conventions – a perfect match with Jarman.

As a young Touko Laaksonen (1920 - 1991) sneak with his homosexuality. But under the pseudonym Tom of Finland, he lived out his homoerotic läderfantasier of the drawings published in the american gaytidningar. The movie about his life is lavish and well made, if a little tame.
