... too often detours into silly subplots that minimize the moral complexity and trivialize the fascinating true-life source material. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- Director Hugh Hudson shoots in lush settings and provides ample footage of the incredible paintings; this could make a nice double feature alongside Werner Herzog's documentary Cave of Forgotten Dreams. Full Review
