To start off - I wanna say that this decidedly inferior documentary was not at all worthy of the wonderful talent that Maurits Cornelis Escher had as a gifted artist-of-the-fantastic.

Flat, dry and uninspired, this decidedly low-budget documentary (which was chiefly made back in 1980) did not come anywhere near to doing Escher justice.

Even today, more than 40 years after his death in 1972 (at the age of 74), M.C. Escher still remains one of the most popular graphic artists in the entire world.

With much of his work focusing in on intricate detail and impossible perspectives, Escher had a life-long fascination with architecture and distorted space. This, in turn, made much of his art some of the most interesting and appealing to the eye that the beholder is likely to see.

Personally, I think that a much more superior documentary needs to be made about the life and art of M.C. Escher.

*Note of Interest* - Escher was left-handed.
