Writer-director Jonathan Parker sets us up for a 90-minute debate on aesthetics and artistic integrity, and that's a tedious exercise in any medium.

Skewers the world of contemporary art in a way that's insightful and funny without becoming a broad parody.

...spry and spiky satire...

The characters...are wrapped up in their own perceptions of their greatness and are an odious lot. This is fitting for the film but leaves the viewer without a character to like.

The impenetrable gallery jargon is quite funny at first, and the brothers' twisted relationship is set up nicely, but the movie errs when it takes itself seriously.

(Untitled) asks a lot of intriguing questions -- more intriguing than the film itself.

A serious comedy in which the assorted players - a couple of artists, some gallerists, and the people who attend (or don't attend) their shows - discuss what art is, what it should aspire to be, and what kind of people collect, exhibit, and consider it.

Right away, you wonder if the filmmakers are trying hard enough.

Woody Allen might have passed on making this film 35 years ago because it was too dated and middlebrow.

A very funny and on-the-nose takedown of artsy pretension.

Art School Confidential goes for its doctorate in Jonathan Parker's bitchy, hilarious (Untitled), the story of two pretentious brothers jealously jousting with each other in the dog-eat-dog world of fine-art cred.

The performances here are all stellar, and narrative movies that take the making of art seriously are a rare breed indeed.

Those who don't know art but who know what they like are likely to come away from "(Untitled)" thinking "Gee, I could have done that."

Has the punctuation and the thinness of a gallery wall label.

It's a testament to the movie's keen script that, until a disjointed final act, we're able to both laugh at these characters and sympathize with them.

It doesn't have a hero who's right and everyone else is wrong. And though it mocks every character, it dismisses nobody. It makes a case for every point of view, including those the filmmakers don't share.

(Untitled) is a comedy worthy of the best Woody Allen, and Adrian is not unlike Woody's persona: a sincere, intense, insecure nebbish, hopeless with women, aiming for greatness.

With the use of Sahara dry satirical wit and subtle, whip-smart mockery, (Untitled) sends up the pretension of the art world with love.

Egos, etiquette, and envy go a long way in this atypical comedy of manners.
