Storyline

Ozzie Decker is an art dealer and a thief. He steals paintings for customers. Frank reluctantly begins to work with Ozzie because Frank's brother owes a lot of money to the mob. On his first art heist, Frank works directly with long-time henchman Nick. Nick and Frank barely survive the Klee heist, and the painting is damaged in process. Unhappy about the Klee canvas, Ozzie puts the pair of thieves onto another target: a Cezanne painting. To secure the continued obedience of his newest colleague, Ozzie kidnaps Frank's girlfriend.

Goofs

Experienced art dealers and collectors would surely know how to pronounce the names of famous artists. They mispronounce the name of Paul Klee here as though it rhymes with "flea", when it in fact sounds like "Clay". See more »

Entertaining caper flick
6 July 2002 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

Canvas will never be anyone's idea of a classic, but deft casting and a reasonably interesting story help it to overcome its low budget. Gary Busey does his usual bug-eyed bad guy thing, which is always fine with me, but John Rhys-Davies makes the film work as an art thief with a heart of gold. The rest of the cast is strictly minor league level, though Vittorio Rossi is not bad as the artist caught up in a web of crime. A thoroughly reasonable way to spend 90 minutes in front of the tube.
