Anyone who sees [the] insufferable "Art History" and doesn't wish for the 74 minutes back has an empty life indeed.

Swanberg has discovered lighting and mood -- to occasionally stunning effect. Perhaps in some future memo from the front lines of indie-sploitation, he will unite them with story and more than a superficial nod to character.

Few films turn the camera on the filmmaking process as bluntly or as harshly.

Another intriguing examination of the human condition courtesy of iconoclastic Mr. Swanberg!

Audience Reviews for Art History

was a US indie documentary part of a triology about an American cinematographer who's shooting amateur porn who interferes/interacts too much with his actors and alters the chemistry of the crew by falling for his female lead. This bored the hell out of me. Plus, the lead actors were plain Janes - brown, mousy, rail thin - nothing short of ordinary. I left early so I can't comment on this. Just a lot of superfluous drama over long shots of minutia. Yawn!
