I watched this documentary several years ago and was greatly impressed. The documentary provides a complete picture of Frank Lloyd Wright's professional and personal lives and along with the usual archival photographs includes a short segment from a television interview he gave late in his life. The documentary also features terrific photography of several of Wright's most important buildings. The documentary's impact is heightened by the liberal use of music from the final movement of Beethoven's Fifth Piano Concerto, a fitting choice for this particular subject.
