Shot with a Peter Greenaway-like austere impudence and edited brilliantly (by Jed Parker), this is an entertaining movie, and a moving one -- even if, like me, you're not especially fond of these paintings or that scene.
With its snappy, even hectic editing and great archival footage, Who Gets to Call It Art? is loads of fun to watch.
Rosen covers a lot of ground in 80 minutes, and he's picked the right subject to focus on.
Peter Rosen's documentary Who Gets to Call It Art? paints an entertaining picture of the cherubic gentleman, who as the first curator of contemporary art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
The film's appeal is for the eyes.
Clocking in at 80 minutes, this glib, largely uninformative and poorly organized précis of the post-World War II art scene succeeds neither as history nor as art history.
You are likely to enjoy this bio-pic to the extent that you buy into the idea that one effete snob ought to define an aesthetic for the rest of us slobs.
Can be enjoyed as a quick overview of the contemporary American art scene.
hard for us to take too seriously
This documentary feels stacked on his subject's side.
The film's flippant style ultimately undermines its material -- and, ironically, makes the American art scene of the '60s appear as shallow and trendy as its detractors always claimed it was.
Through his use of green screen and montage, Rosen seems to want to position his film as its own work of Pop Art.
