A brilliant new documentary about one of America’s greatest living photographers: Gregory Crewdson doesn’t just “take” his images, he creates them, through elaborate days and weeks of invention, design, and set-up. His 10-year quest to create a series of haunting, surreal, and stunningly elaborate portraits of small-town American life is filmed with unprecedented access as he makes perfect renderings of a disturbing, imperfect world.

Documentary director Ben Shapiro has devoted years of his life to capturing Crewdson’s method and soaking up the result on the big screen seems a fitting way to do justice to both his and Gregory Crewdson’s work.
