“This doc is a quiet view into Gregory Crewdsonu0026#39;s 8-year photography project, u0026quot;Beneath the Roses.u0026quot; The film does a great job of weaving on-set footage of lighting, posing, and directing, with moments from Crewdsonu0026#39;s interviews and personal history.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI found it intriguing to see all the production value that goes into just one of his photos, and every time the film cuts to the finished shot, I couldnu0026#39;t help but be amazed by the u0026quot;still lifeu0026quot; quality of each one.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eCrewdsonu0026#39;s photos have a deep, self-reflective quality that, at times, is haunting to become lost in. This documentary shows the man, and the crews, behind these fabulous works of art.”
