Final Portrait“Paris, 1964: American art lover James Lord—from whose memoir the script is adapted—is invited by his friend, famous Swiss artist Alberto Giacometti, to sit for his portrait. Won’t take more than two or three hours, says Giacometti. Nearly a fortnight later, the artist is still snarling at his canvas, repeatedly scrubbing out his work to start again, while Lord has postponed multiple flights back to New York. Stanley Tucci’s film has serious points to make about the burden of being an artist, even a world-famous one. But they’re securely embedded in the comedy of frustration played out between painter and sitter, thanks largely to Geoffrey Rush’s irascible performance. Stooped, dishevelled, shaggy-haired, he roams around his junk-strewn studio, seizing at every potential distraction, whether it’s jaunts to the local bistro or visits from his prostitute model/muse/mistress Caroline. Poésy provides fine support, as do Sylvie Testud as the artist’s wife, Tony Shalhoub as his brother and Armie Hammer as Lord. But this is Rush’s show, and he rises to it triumphantly. If you enjoyed Timothy Spall as Mr. Turner, here’s another portrait not to be missed.”—Philip Kemp, GamesRadar. “It's a very enjoyable drama, by turns hilarious and touching, and Rush gives a rich portrait of a dedicated craftsman who truly suffered for his art.”—The Independant (Ireland)
