The Collectors

Herb & Dorothy (2008)
Dir - Megumi Sasaki

Had this in my Netflix Instant queue for quite some time and finally watched it because streaming ends this weekend. Great look at an elderly couple in New York who have spent their lives collecting art for the love of art on their meager salaries as a postal worker and librarian (both now retired). A few minimalist/conceptual artists are interviewed and many great pieces are shown. I don't personally like every bit of minimalist/conceptual art I see but I like Herb & Dorothy and what they do.
