The gorgeous music includes Ralph Vaughan Williams' wafting tone poem ''The Lark Ascending'' -- apt in describing an artist who might well be part bird.
The film itself is perfectly poised between artistry and audacity. It's beautiful.
James Marsh's documentary raises the bar for the genre to skyscraper height.
