SATURDAY, OCTOBER 22 11:30 AM

“The fascinating new documentary follows the attempt by a team of Dutch art historians to assemble an exhibit…to honor the 500th anniversary of the artist’s death (Bosch lived from 1450-1516). The members of the team…pay visits to the European museums where most of Bosch’s 20 or so surviving paintings are housed… They survey the work, study it, photograph it…clean and restore it, and attempt to analyze the complex codes of imagery — the religious allusions, the eroticized violence, the references to heaven and hell — that make Bosch’s work such a perverse tapestry of sin and transcendence…” (Owen Gleiberman, Variety)
