My Architect

This Oscar-nominated documentary follows the Citizen Kane-like quest of Nathaniel Kahn to understand his long-dead father, famed architect Louis I. Kahn. Nathaniel was actually Kahn's illegitimate son, part of three families that Kahn maintained. Interviewing those who knew him, Nathaniel hopes to get a handle on who his father really was. But it is in visiting Kahn's buildings that Nathaniel achieves the greatest understanding. Though it starts out as a simple attempt at pop psychology, My Architect grows into a magnificent tribute to the lasting power of art. 116 minutes
