Directed by Teller. With Penn Jillette and David Hockney. In this acclaimed and amazing documentary, Tim Jenison, a Texas entrepreneur and engineer, launches an investigation into Johannes Vermeer’s mysterious working methods. He ends up painting a detailed reproduction of the artist’s 1662 masterpiece “The Music Lesson”—his own “Vermeer.” “Like art itself, words can’t fully capture what it is like to see the Vermeer emerge under Jenison’s brush.” –L.A.
