Teshigahara's is probably the best cinematic conspectus of Gaudi's Barcelonan oeuvre that we'll ever see. It's so beautifully shot (in his idiomatic 1.33:1) and nearly speechless in a mercifully observational manner. Following that slump in the '70s and his assumption of the Sogetsu School's administration, his late work is superb.
A few documentaries regarding the Sagrada Familia have been produced; the only satisfying effort I've seen is "Mystery of Creation." https://robertbuchanan.info/CFS/2019/08/29/sublime-sagrada-the-mystery-of-creation/
Paired with "Singing in the Rain" or "Gypsy," "Fair Weather" constitutes one half of a solid double-bill. Donen's death last year marked the passage of Old Hollywood's last major filmmaker.
Definitely, Teshigahara's has been the best I've seen this week, his work in this film is so mesmerizing, I really like it, I don't know how to express what I feel about it but I enjoyed it. I'll check "Mystery of Creation" soon, and the rest of Hollywood's classics, thanks!!!!
