"what makes a square tick"? (tezm 1989)

And that in a hundred years people can look upon this movie as that experience. That it is possible to view a composer who is truly masterful in his art, experience what it is like for him to find a great sound, and to watch them build from that. what a load of fawning bumfluffery kenneth?, you know, to me its no more than stating the obvious.its not p.watching rofound,and although i just missed mozart by a few years his music is in a certain pigeon hole that only a few can can join, a band i never really liked 'the beatles' are in it yet a band i love 'the stones' are not..im talking firstly about comparison and i like what ive heard from phillip glass but he does not do what the beatles and mozart can do which is having such a wide audience from different musical genre's,personally i think JS Bach was is the best/most gifted musician and writer ever but again he is the stones, mozart the beatles, there is so many more instances of what if ..and nico/velvet underground are right at the top of that pile yet no more than phillip glass,because for years no one give a fuck about them/hadn't heard them etc but through punk in 1977 as a sixteen year old buying a record in a little shop in manchester england i could hear a sound that was playing on their record deck and i thought it was and still is unbeatable in any decade, i asked the name of it and he said "Venus in furs" by velvet underground.a defining moment in my whole musical make up for the future.so a late influence on so many bands and people and getting more popular every year, i think velvet underground will be the biggest band on the planet in 100 years from now but its all about personal opinion so get your own, dont quote limp words that were exagerated for his own ego, now im just gonna listen to "music with changing parts" by phillip glass.....

Really, a talk about music should have better sound quality. I couldn't sit through this, and I was really interested...

I watched this documentary film, subtle , deep, complex.It dos not pander to a populace audience nor paradoxically to 'the fans'. It seems to me to be an insightful enetryway into his life as his work and his work as his life and how they were the same thing. The only jarring note was his wife and her discontents,her desire for more time, attention and sharing of himself with her in a language she understood more readily. As a creative ,spiritual type I found it valuable to watch how Glass had navigated his questing spirit along side a muscial world that was hostile to him and his output. Nor dd he shy away from speaking about the work of the work...of life of his music. I loved it, wished I could have bought the DVD as I left the cinema.
