Raphael: The Lord of the Arts is an ambitious whirlwind tour of the Renaissance artist’s masterworks that showcases around 50 paintings by Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino (1483-1520), who was known for his serene portraits and the sinuous grandeur of his human forms. Raphael is best described as a docudrama, and includes a number of dramatic, well-acted, and beautifully filmed reenactments with Flavio Parenti in the role of Raphael. The film stands as the first major documentary on the artist’s work, and was pared down from around 200 hours of footage to clock in at 90 minutes.
