Tim's Vermeer

Rated PG-13 80 minutes 2014

Eccentric doc about an eccentric scientist with an eccentric project: painting a copy of Johannes Vermeer’s The Music Lesson using a camera obscura and an arrangement of mirrors, to “prove” that the 17th-century Dutch artist used scientific methods to produce his fantastically detailed work. The project takes eight years to complete, and director Teller and narrator Penn Jillette are there to follow subject Tim Jenison’s every move. The combined maniacal fervor of Jenison and the filmmakers is just crazy enough to make us smile, for exactly eighty minutes (80 min.).
