(Untitled) Reviews

July 4, 2010
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.

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.

November 12, 2009
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.

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

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.

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?

There's plenty to recommend.

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.

(Untitled) is a tinny satire destined to go (Unwatched) because it is (Uninteresting).

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.

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.

(Untitled)'s onslaught of self-indulgent bohos and art-vs.-commerce clichés are as ersatz as their objects of scorn.

(Untitled) tries to reignite who-gets-to-call-it-art debates that haven't been taken seriously for at least a decade.
