Poking about at my preferred little indie DVD rental store, I fell upon this title in the documentaries, (or old timey TV movies) in the, shall we say "very obscure" section of the store. And it's got the name Picasso on it, so what the heck, I blew the dust off of it and rented it.
Funny thing about the past, is that one's notion of it is constructed by images and stories that have lasted through the ages, and stayed fresh, not fallen out of fashion, or become hokey-looking. The most popular movies of the late '60s, that are still cool in a "retro" sort of way, that make those days look still fresh, exciting, sexy and dashing, are the more likely to come to my attention as a millennial: the titles that the film industry still finds worth promoting, and still turn a profit when offered to a younger generation.
Overall, I will say that I expected something painful and silly, or only a superficial look at a famous historical figure so we can sell tickets, or get viewers, while promoting our actor, but there was some artistic merit to it that I could get into.
