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

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.

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.

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.

...starts to feel like a one trick pony.

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

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.

The rare picture nowadays that takes satiric aim at the pomposity of the world of high art and hits the target, even if the blows are more often than not only glancing ones.

[Parker's] new film has that same ultra-black comedy vibe, which means good news for us few fans and bad news for everyone else.

It's a sharp movie, pitched at a tone located squarely between archness and sincerity.

A simply terrific ensemble cast is the main attraction in this probably too-clever-for-its-own-good satire on the world of modern art.
