Possibly the best yet in this series
7 December 2019 | by thestspSee all my reviews

I have watched The Artist is Present and it was beautiful. Having said that, this isn't so much a parody of that film as it is a different song set to the same tune, and in that respect it's sweet, hilarious, and perfect. The art pieces range from absurd to nearly as thoughtful as those in the original film this episode uses as inspiration. One should watch it entirely as well before committing to an opinion because the end may be one of Documentary Now!'s best endings to date (and that's set among some very strong contenders.) This series is a treasure.
