This is one of those hidden gem movies that makes me love living in L.A.

I loved watching Tim, the quintessential engineer, doing what engineers do. They get interested in something. They obsess over it. They re-invent themselves around the problem, and they go about the long and patient task of solving it.

You see the results and we gasp that it is a miracle, but the entire movie showed us that it was exactly the opposite. Vermeer was an engineer. Thus asking the age old question of the different, if any, between Art and Science. Fascinating when you remember that Tim mad this fortune as a scientist who enabled artist!

Plus Tim goes about the whole thing with a sense of humor and enough funny stories to keep the whole thing moving.
