An Architect and a Motorcycle

Two wonderful movies from 2004 come out in DVD this week. My Architect is a documentary about the life and art of architect Louis Kahn. His son explores the life of his father, who was not a very nice man ... but a brilliant artist. Interesting piece, touching in places.

The Motorcycle Diaries is a great road trip film, depicting the young adventures of Che Guevara and his pal Alberto on a road trip through South America. The motorcycle doesn't last long, but the young men accomplish their journey. This film was made on location in South America, and many scenes are breathtaking. This was one of my favorite films this year !!
