"Tim's Vermeer"

Magician and filmmaker Teller's wonderfully mind-boggling doc "Tim's Vermeer," on inventor Tim Jenison's goal to unlock the secret behind Dutch master Johannes Vermeer's photorealistic paintings, begins its awards qualifying run today (December 6 in New York; December 13 in LA). The film recently made the Oscar Documentary shortlist. Check out an exclusive interview snippet below, where Jenison discusses how he hatched the idea to crack the mystery.
