Because Parker is so determined to expose the art scene's pretensions, he neglects other areas, like dialogue, plot and character. And what's the point in making a shallow satire about shallow subjects?
Shrewdly hedges its bets about the value of it all, it is ultimately on the side of experimental music and art and their champions, no matter how eccentric. For that alone this brave little movie deserves an audience.
Shelton's radiant performance as the brothers' elusive object of desire helps rescue (Untitled) from an occasional listlessness that comes as a consequence of Parker's nuanced, gentle jabs at the art world.
There's something about Shelton as Madeleine that tilts the movie in her favor. Maybe it's her deadpan delivery, or the series of hilariously noisy outfits she wears, but Madeleine seems like the sanest person in this absurd world.
Adam Goldberg glowers effectively as a serious composer of maddeningly difficult music; the wonderful Marley Shelton glows with hilariously cool composure as a gallery owner who exhibits unendurable art pieces.
