Avant-Garde Artistes on Parade…Neat and Nutty Satire, 12 January 2015
Author: LeonLouisRicci from United States

A Smart Movie that is Insightful and Entertaining as it Satirises the Avant-Garde Art World. Not a Fresh Idea to be Sure but an Always Welcome Debate about "Yes, but is it Art?". That Conundrum Seems to be Forever with Us and it Never Really has an Easy Answer and it Shouldn't because it is Purely Rhetorical.

Trying to Answer the Question is Like Trying to Answer "Why are we here?" or "What is the Meaning of life?" It is a Labyrinth of a Quest to Attempt Such Profound Inquiries.

Director Jonathan Parker is Articulate and Funny as He Dumbs Down the Dumb Work of these Creators and Their Creations and is Empathetic and Enjoys Poking Fun at What He Loves. His Own Film Straddles the Line Between Commercially Viable and Free Expression. A Sort of a Combination of the Two On-Screen Brothers.

Adam Goldberg as a Sound Artist that says "Harmony was a Capitalist plot to sell pianos.", and His Brother Aaron Bailey as a Painter who has Not Really Sold Out but His Paintings Do, to Corporations and Hotels.

The Film Includes Many Arty Characters that Give This Thing Pizazz. Marley Shelton as the Gallery Owner that is Very Comfortable in Her Own Fake Skin of a Noise Inducing Wardrobe of Vinyl and Ruffles. Her Audible Attire Attracts the Noise Conscious Sound Artist for a Romantic Interlude, but that is Hardly the Story Here.

There Hardly is a Story Here but what is Here is a Parade of Amusing and Egotistical Artists that are Lively and Loving Every Minute of Their Expressionism. Just Like the Creators of this Engaging Entry Into a Very Weird World. The Movie is Not for All Tastes but that is the Point.
