William Kurelek’s The Maze is a timeless film about an artist, his creations, his inner demons and the external influences – both good and bad – that shaped his work. The feature length documentary is dramatically told through Kurelek’s paintings and his on-camera revelations. It takes an intimate look into the life of one of the 20th century’s most fascinating artists, his struggles with attempted suicide and a self-professed “spiritual crisis.”
