Harry Donovan: I just don't understand why you guys have to sit here and piss on other people, let alone Rembrandt.
Cafe intellectual: Professor Scheerding *proved* that the painting, The Man With The Golden Helmet, is just a cheap fake.
Prof. Scheerding: I'm sure you know that, uh, in 1930 there were over 800 *supposed* Rembrandts.
Harry Donovan: And now we're down to 241, thanks to you and your friends - and dropping. So, bully for you! Every schoolkid's favorite picture is now junk, because some self-appointed windbag has said so. You know, the problem is, ...

Better than most of the junk out there
5 December 1998 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

I was VERY pleasantly surprised by this one. Its dialogue on the true meaning of great art is truly interesting, even if simplistic (but not relative to most films out there).

I thought Patric was pretty good, but it's the script itself that does most of the work.

The scenery and imagery is also fantastic.
