I saw Finding Vivian Maier last night and thought that the movie was very interesting and riveting. I've been following the story of Vivian Maier's photography ever since the story first appeared on PBS-WTTW, Chicago. At first pass, the story was lacking in general information about her, but the many 1950s/1960s street photos of Chicago (mostly) and New York City were wonderful. The photos, I think it's fair to say, took the international photo art world by storm. After she died, the bulk of her photos and negatives were bought by John Maloof, a co-director of the movie. Vivian Maier's personal and photographic story, along with John Maloof's story relative to purchasing the photos and fleshing out information on Ms Maier are the subject of the movie and the two interwoven stories are most interesting. Interviews of those that knew her or her work are in the movie, many of her photos are shown, as are shows of her photos. I, like the previous reviewer, would like to see the movie again. If it comes out in CD or similar form, I'd be a buyer.

The Synopsis for Finding Vivian Maier (2013) 1080p
Real estate agent, John Maloof explains how a trip to a local auction house, in search for old pictures to use for a book history of his neighborhood, resulted in him bidding and winning a box full of old negatives. John, goes through the massive quantity of negatives, describes how impressed he was by the quality of the images, quickly determined they were not reverent to his project and just put them away. That could have very likely had been the end of the story, if the power of the images had not pushed him to fall in love with photography. John confides that his photo hobby quickly motivated him to set up a darkroom and devote large amounts of time shooting. As he learned more about photography, he recognized that those negatives he had bought, then stored, were the work of a real master. In an attempt to confirm his suspicion, he selected about 100 images and put them online with the hope that the feedback would confirm his judgement as to the strength of the images.

Wonderful documentary with two main interwoven stories.Reviewed bymunnhVote: 9/10
This film covers the fascinating discovery and commercializing of one of the un-seen masters of 20th century photography. You probably want to start with the BBC documentary about Vivian Maier before watching this one, called The Vivian Maier Mystery. It has more facts, and research, and explains what is known about her life in a definitive fashion. The BBC film also presents multiple viewpoints on key topics, and was not financed by the company that sells her prints. That said, the tale as told in Finding Vivian Maier is good reality TV drama, and has more of an emotional tug -- and really makes you want to go out and buy some of this artists' work.
This documentary is one of a kind. The story of an eccentric, possible mentally ill mystery woman and her prolific photographic work. If the move was just about her art, it would be extraordinary, as her work was. The story of her bizarre and secret life just enhance the film. For a first time effort from John Maloof, this one is very well done. The film starts with those who knew her, openly expressing their amazement to her unknown and mysterious life as a street photographer, filled with the images she kept a secret from everyone. You wonder how someone with her talent could keep it a secret for so long. Maloof plays a significant role in front of the camera as it is necessary for him to tell the story. When it is over, you are still left with a sense of disappointment. You know more about this mystery woman, yet you still crave for more..............And, the images still haunt you. This is one movie I will see numerous times. The showing I attended had Jeff Garlin participate in a Q & A. It was entertaining as he detailed the process and effort Maloof put in to make this gem of a documentary. The added bonus was my friends brother was in the film. Very exciting. Please see this film if you can. Please see the photography of Vivian Maier if you can.
