As far as a movie goes, this is really boring. As far as the artist goes, what an idiot he was. The process of making art is tedious by nature (to the bystanders); there just isn't enough for an interesting movie.

Quirky but annoying little movie. Rush has been in some good film but this isn't one of them.

the acting is good but the portrait of the portrait process is a trifle tedious - as it undoubtedly is in real life.
the blond, buttoned up and pressed vs the gray disheveled mania

Rush is brilliant as the Italian artists in his last years of life and Hammer makes for solid role as Lord. Laughs a minute in this incredible master piece.

Summary: Final Portrait is the story of the touching and offbeat friendship between American writer and art-lover James Lord and Alberto Giacometti, as seen through Lord’s eyes and revealing unique insight into the beauty, frustration, profundity and sometimes the chaos of the artistic process. Set in 1964, while on a short trip to Paris, Lord is asked by his friend, Giacometti, to sit for a portrait. The process, promises Giacometti, will take only a few days and so Lord agrees — ultimately wondering “how much longer can it go on like this?” [Sony Pictures Classics]"
