All Critics (41) | Top Critics (10)

Kahn has certainly exposed the horrors of the art market here - I wouldn't buy a used car from the smug Cappellazzo - but he gives art itself pretty short shrift.

Nathaniel Kahn lets the contemporary-art market shoot itself in the pedicured foot. But not everything worth saying needs to be articulated in this highly polished documentary-a beautiful piece of representational art, as it happens.

An intelligent film, 'The Price of Everything' is also very funny - usually on purpose, though some of the art is ridiculous.

The implicit castigation the documentary has to offer is hard to miss. So is the sense of overriding fascination. Is it possible to cast a cold eye if the look being given is so wide-eyed?

Oct 26, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Kahn is a quiet filmmaker, and he gently prods his sources to go beyond the typical art world hyperbole of "gorgeous" and "wonderful."

A scrappy documentary on the increasingly currency-focused machinations of the art world.
