Scott Hicks was converted to the music of Philip Glass by his children. Now he has compiled a sumptuous and musically rich portrait of the man himself, seen from twelve different angles. Glass is a workaholic with a very particular aesthetic; only late moments from his wife Holly suggest there’s an emotional price to pay.
