UK, 1996 (MIFF 1997, Documentary)
Director: Daniel Whistler
Theodore Major is a cranky old man. He's arguably one of England's greatest painters. But Theodore's finished with money - he wants his paintings seen, not sold, and if you can't understand that or them then you're blind. Crippled with arthritis, he's going down with his brushes blazing. Friend and carer Claire is ever calm as Theo delivers his invective straight down the barrel of the camera. You can't help but love this man and director Daniel Whistler gives us some magic moments with him.
