REVIEWS

REVIEW by ANDY WEBSTER in THE NEW YORK TIMES
“Architecture aficionados, and design mavens in general, will have an agreeable time with “Visual Acoustics”…”

REVIEW by KENNETH TURAN in LOS ANGELES TIMES
“”Visual Acoustics” is nominally about the life and career of landmark Southern California architectural photographer Julius Shulman, but it’s more about the buildings he photographed than it is about him. Which is probably the way he’d like it.”

REVIEW by KIRK HONEYCUTT in THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
“There are two audiences for Eric Bricker’s “Visual Acoustics: The Modernism of Julius Shulman.” The first is people with an abiding interest in architecture, photography, art, design and historical Southern California. The other is anyone who wants to see a really terrific, intensely focused documentary on a fascinating personality.”

REVIEW by ELLA TAYLOR in THE VILLAGE VOICE

“Just about everyone in Eric Bricker’s festschrift seems to love Julius Shulman, including (adorably) the unstoppable old gent himself. What’s not to like?”

REVIEW by AVI OFFER for THE NYC MOVIE GURU

“A thoroughly compelling, well-edited and illuminating documentary that rarely has a dull moment.”

REVIEW by PHIL KENNICOTT for THE WASHINGTON POST
“An hour and 20 minutes may seem like a hefty investment to make for the life and work of a man who photographed buildings. But Julius Shulman, the irrepressible and engaging subject of the documentary “Visual Acoustics,” was no ordinary architectural photographer, and his long and productive career makes for a fascinating primer in modern architecture, Los Angeles culture and the meaning of a well-lived life.”

REVIEW by CARRIE RICKEY for PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER

” Eric Bricker’s glowing portrait of Shulman uses its subject’s photos to persuade the viewer that one picture is worth a thousand architectural masterworks.”

REVIEW by ROBERT KOEHLER in VARIETY
“Eric Bricker’s handsome, functional if not very cinematic tribute to Shulman emphatically argues for his place as the most important of architecture photographers, and the person who has directly conveyed the titular style to a wider public.”
