This part-documentary, part narrative film delves into the aesthetics of Marcel Duchamp from the perspective and method of Sherlock Holmes. Two seemingly opposed areas linked by the fact that, according to the film, the artist once said something to the effect that he created art the same way a criminal mastermind would plan and execute his deeds. The confrontation of both's views is intriguing and perhaps more important than we realize, while at the same time it sheds some light on the genesis of his work, which includes but is not limited influences from alchemy. This film is only available in electronic form from some universities here in the US. I for one would LOVE to own a Blu-ray or DVD copy.
