Gregory Crewdson: Brief Encounters
Directed by Ben Shapiro
4:30 p.m. Sunday, November 11
Denver Pavilions

Gregory Crewdson, the subject of this documentary, "is a remarkable photographer," Withey enthuses. "He takes these massive photographs -- and by massive, I mean that he creates sets for each one almost as if he's making a movie. He'll spend tens of thousands of dollars to create a set for one photo, with huge light structures and massive lights and all kinds of extras. And he does these interviews with actors even if they'll just be sitting in one spot for however many takes he uses to get this photo."

Not that he's done after he clicks. "He'll composite the image from a bunch of photos to create one. So it raises all of these questions about what is photography anymore, and what is art. It's a really interesting look at art and how it's created these days."

Look below to see trailers for all three of the weekend must-sees.
