This documentary narrated by the legendary Tom Waits charts the life and career of John Baldessari, the so called “Godfather of conceptual art”. Baldessari is best know (by his own admission) for his work where he placed dots over people’s faces in photographs, and has had hundreds of solo shows around the world. He famously cremated all of his former paintings in 1970, placing them in an urn and even baking cookies with some of them. The documentary is short, sweet and tongue in cheek, with super-fast editing between still images and footage of Baldessari responding comically to Wait’s drawling voiceover.
