Titled after one of David Hockney’s best-known paintings, A Bigger Splash offers an intimate, innovative account of the English-born artist’s process and personal obsessions. Hazan’s semi-improvised, narrative-nonfiction hybrid captures Hockney at a moment of crisis as he struggles to work after the end of his relationship with his muse, American artist Peter Schlesinger. The film offers a snapshot of Hockney’s career as well as an unfiltered (and often steamy) look at gay life in the early 1970s. (106 mins., DCP)
