I found this documentary to be a mean-spirited construction targeting a small time shopping mall portrait painter and his desperate (victim of the globalization of poverty) son who is in need of purpose and legitimacy. It is no great feat, especially as sincere as the subjects appear to be, to exploit their uniformed failings and that is what I see in this documentary. What would have taken some work, some thoughtfulness and critical ability would have been the creation of a documentary on the destruction of art as nothing more than a commodity to be traded and the dominant paradigm that supports such a globalized insidious abomination. I also have to wonder if those familiar and knowledgeable in race(ism)theory will ask themselves, is this documentary racist?
