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.
