The Art of the Steal

Directed by Don Argott

2009

The Art of the Steal is a documentary about, and against, the controversial relocation of the Barnes Foundation, a valuable collection of post-Impressionist art. The film is informative, engaging, and opinionated, although it’s sharp criticisms turn into dull repetition and agitprop as the film wears on.

Would see.

One thought on “The Art of the Steal

  1. I saw this last year! It was pretty interesting to learn about the struggle to make the Barnes Collection public. The film seemed confused over whether it presented a debate or a narrative, which may have led to some of the repetition.
