“ Enjoyed this movie. It wasn't really a retrospective on his work, but more about the competition between him and Picasso. And included a lot of "tortured artist" scenes. Great artists usually have many internal struggles and this movie shows all of the ugliness that can bring. I was very moved by this portrayal of his life. ” - nancyhammond

Masterfully written and acted. LOVED it! Based on the NetFlix description, I was expecting a comedy -- guy shaves his mustache and no one notices ... ha, ha, right?! Not! Far from funny, but very brilliant! ” - nancyhammond
