The process, Giacometti assures him, will take only a few days. Flattered and intrigued, Lord agrees. Seen through Lord's eyes, so begins the story of an offbeat friendship and an insightful look into the beauty, frustration, profundity, and, at times, downright chaos of the artistic process. Final Portrait is a thoughtful depiction of a genius and a friendship between two men who are utterly different, yet increasingly bonded through a single act of creativity. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=320690 Solomon R.
