  • It's rare to get such a frank and authoritative view of the market and its flaws. Kahn has returned from his trip down the rabbit hole with a clear-eyed and enthralling picture of what he found there.

  • Kahn has certainly exposed the horrors of the art market here - I wouldn't buy a used car from the smug Cappellazzo - but he gives art itself pretty short shrift.

  • Input from an impressive lineup of art-world megastars... gives the film heft and scope.

  • Nathaniel Kahn lets the contemporary-art market shoot itself in the pedicured foot. But not everything worth saying needs to be articulated in this highly polished documentary-a beautiful piece of representational art, as it happens.

  • An intelligent film, 'The Price of Everything' is also very funny - usually on purpose, though some of the art is ridiculous.

  • The implicit castigation the documentary has to offer is hard to miss. So is the sense of overriding fascination. Is it possible to cast a cold eye if the look being given is so wide-eyed?
