Critic Reviews for Seymour: An Introduction
There's no pressing story to tell, or even especially vital achievement to record, so the film probably counts as bit of self-indulgence from Hawke, but it's got a very good heart.
The great joy of the film, whether you know piano or not, is watching Bernstein teach.
Hawke's cinematic etude may not unlock all the mysteries of music, but "Seymour: An Introduction" is universal enough to be understood by a bananafish.
Coming off of his superb one-two performances for Richard Linklater in Before Midnight and Boyhood, Hawke continues to work at a creative high level. He demonstrates a rapport and openness with his subject that proves exceptionally affecting.
Whether or not Hawke got any answers to his questions about the purpose of being artist, seeking them under the guidance of a teacher like Bernstein resulted in this work of art.
Audience Reviews for Seymour: An Introduction
A heart warming tale of a genius who couldn't get over his fear of playing before crowds to make it a career. Becoming a teacher that inspired more than music students, Seymour is a man that you are glad to get to know.
