Tim's (Wonderful) Vermeer

Tim Jenison and the producers, only really really tiny.
TIFF is in full swing here in Toronto. Saw Tim's Vermeer; it's excellent.

The film follows eccentric genius Tim Jenison in his quest to paint a Vermeer, inspired by David Hockney's book, Secret Knowledge.

And he does.
Detail of Girl with the Pearl Earring, one of my favourites.
Tim and his invention. Or re-invention.
If you are interested in painting, optical devices, or mysteries, see it.
