Movie Info

In Maura Axelrod's iconoclastic documentary, we meet the art world's enfant terrible Maurizio Cattelan. The film documents Maurizio from his early days to the recent Guggenheim retrospective with a few twists along the way. The film captures his heretical installation of a meteorite hitting the Pope and outlandish stunt of duct taping his gallerist to the wall until he faints. His place in the art world is solidified when he lands a major retrospective at the Guggenheim in 2011. Axelrod's equally playful profile leaves no stone unturned in trying to figure out: Who is Maurizio Cattelan?

  • Newcomers who can avoid feeling burned by occasional dishonesty should join longtime admirers in enjoying this account of a career Cattelan claims ended with his splashy Guggenheim retrospective in 2011.

  • "Maurizio Cattelan: Be Right Back," Axelrod plays along with [its] eccentric subject's insouciant attitude vis à vis his own identity to mostly delightful effect.

  • In this stylish documentary, Cattelan talks effusively on camera about his career, his work, and his private life in unexpectedly candid interviews.

  • Be Right Back doesn't appear to revel in itself quite the same way. Rather, it takes itself a little too seriously, holding its viewers at the length of its over-stylized arms, and so becomes something of a snooze.
