Movie Reviews

Entertaining with one big flaw
C. Fischer | Bloomington, IN United States | 05/02/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The premise is quite well carried off and the art even looks real, but there is one big logical flaw in the plot that bothered me. It is NOT fraud to use a "nom de brush" just as writers can legally use a "nom de plume". As long as the artist was not trying to pass off the work as an existing artist's work, there was NO law that was broken. As for embellishing the background of the artist, well just ask any Hollywood agent about that. Otherwise the story is provocative and does make you wonder...just what is being "valued" in a work of art..the work itself or the label, with the label being the artist's tortured bio."
