I go to Penwith, at the southwestern tip of England, to take a journey back in time. It is there, in the Cornwall district near the Land's End cape, that I walk amid the earliest evidence of humans in Britain. From massive, free-standing monoliths to burial chambers dating back 4,000 years, Penwith contains the greatest concentration of ancient monuments in the British Isles.

Works of art can do just about anything - except explain how other works of art work. That's one of the reasons many movies and books about artists fall short. They presume to tell us the truth about things they are in no position to explain, much less match the artistry of. Documentary films do not face this problem. Three recent ones work wonders because they allow their subjects to speak for themselves. More important, Matthew Akers' "Marina Abramovic: The Artist Is Present," Corinna Belz's"Gerhard Richter Painting"and Neil Berkeley's "Beauty Is Embarrassing" do not reveal how Abramovic, Richter or Wayne White make their work.
