Half full

One night last week I went to the final screening of the documentary Glass: A Portrait of Philip in 12 Parts. Fans of documentaries and/or music (or both) should certainly try to check it out. Glass comes off as a remarkably humble but passionate artist.

You don't need to be interested in Philip Glass or even a fan of his music to find this documentary compelling. Here’s the trailer (with painter Chuck Close’s retelling of a Glass-inspired joke at the end).

I'm biased, thinking that Glass is perhaps the most overrated composer ever, but now I have to check it out because this film looks really good. Thanks for the vid, Mark!
