It is always exciting when an undiscovered genius gets discovered. In the case of Vivian Maier, the mysterious street photographer, her discovery occurred shortly after her death; for this reason,
quite a bit of material was still available to researchers. Not only did she leave over 100,000 film negatives but also a range of acquaintances who were able to provide some interesting information about her personality and habits. However, the real revelations about Vivian Maier are the photographs themselves: they reveal a complex and unblinking vision of tragedy, humor, ugliness, beauty-- life in all its various shades of meaning. This documentary is a must for anyone interested in both the art of photography and the inscrutability of true genius.
