This afternoon we went to see "Sketches of Frank Gehry" at a little old theater in NW Portland (Cinema 21). It is not the kind of movie you are likely to see at the multiplex, but oh, such a worthwhile afternoon if you can find it playing anywhere near you. It is a documentaray about the acclaimed, but controversial architect, Frank Gehry, and is a fascinating insight into the creative process. The scenes where he and a colleague were designing a building by cutting and taping pieces of paper were so wonderful that I really think I must own this movie so I can see it again and again. You can read more here and even see a little cut from the movie.
