Visual Acoustics

The title, which I don’t much like, strikes me as one of those clever mixing of ideas and media that doesn’t yield anything meaningful. But the film Visual Acoustics is great fun for people who love architecture, especially those who already know the huge role that photographer Julius Shulman played in promoting the mid-century modern architecture that defined an era and an ethos. I reviewed it in Friday’s Post.

  1. I saw the film Sunday and just now read your insightful and thoughtful review. I admit to being caught up in the spell of the movie and Shulman’s infectious passion, so I missed some of the contradictions you bring to light. I did find myself thinking that it must be nice to have Mitch Glazer and Kelly Lynch’s problem: a room in one’s house only practical for hosting cocktail parties with string quartets.
