Luminous and specific, a form of realism that honors, that captures, a woman, a man, a child’s individuality, Alice Neel’s paintings are eternally interesting, human and wonderful. This documentary examines her difficult life, has chatty moments between her sons, but best of all makes one hungry to find a gallery, a book, even a Web site so one can see more.
