Editorial Reviews

An all-star cast has wicked fun in skewering the pretentions and superficiality of the art world in this comic romp by director Duncan Ward. Emmy and Golden Globe winner Gillian Anderson (The X-Files) is a cougar on the prowl for a new boy-toy; Heather Graham (Boogie Nights, Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me) is an ambitious assistant who will do anything to advance her career; Tony winner Alan Cumming (X-Men 2) is a hapless dealer with too much decency for his own good; Danny Huston (Robin Hood, Clash Of The Titans) is a rapacious dealer; and the legendary Christopher Lee (The Lord Of The Rings trilogy) is the owner of the priceless work of art titled Boogie Woogie that they all circle with naked desire. Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but art ALWAYS has a price.

Customer Reviews

It had a good story and actors did a great job to make it enjoyable.
Frank Corsi
The fact that one of the "artists" would incorporate an actual suicide (that she was largely responsible for) into her art was perverse.
Dave
The director, Duncan Ward, does a great job of giving you the look and feel for that part of London.

This is a dark, dark look at the world of artists and those who deal in art. Calling this a black comedy is a gross understatement. Essentially everyone in this armpit of existence is in it for themselves. All are jockeying for position to get more, more, more for themselves. And they'll screw or screw over whomever they have to to get what they want.

There are a couple of stories running throughout this film. On one end you have Stellan Skaarsgard (an art collector) and Danny Huston (his art broker) trying to screw each other by outbidding each other to buy a piece of art (The Boogie Woogie of the title) which the owner, Chrostopher Lee, doesn't even want to sell. Meanwhile, Skaarsgard's assistant, Heather Graham, wants his backing to open her own gallery and start with a show by a maybe up and and coming video artist. To do so she will screw said artist's current promoter and screw Skaarsgard out of his cut. And Skaarsgard's wife, Gillian Anderson, will fool around with another up and comer and then want a divorce which will lead to more people screwing other people. You get the picture.

This is an acerbic view of how this part of society works. Everyone's disregard for the feelings of the people around them is unbelievable. There is a scene where Skaarsgard presents a "gift" to his new assistant. How, in anyone's world, this would be considered an appropriate gift is way beyond me.

The director, Duncan Ward, does a great job of giving you the look and feel for that part of London. The beauty, the hipness, the wealth and the attitude. All the acting is good and the writing is, for the most part, outstanding. Some might consider it "too", and they're probably right which is why I didn't give this the big FIVE stars. But all in all this is a great ride. It moves at a quick pace and doesn't linger on anything too long. I can recommend this to anyone who is even remotely interested in this part of existence.

This movie snuck up on me....I knew the loveyly Heather Grahmn was in it but that was it. Let me say that it was very funny and Heather looked amazing....She always brings something new to the table in each of her movies.

All I can say is that you won't be bored and that you may be surprise by how much you like it....

No spolilers here.....just my opninon....

Get this movie for your collection.

I know critics and fair share of movie fans didn't like this movie. I don't think it was bad in my opinion. I find if you are a person who loves your art cinema, you will excuse most of the inconsistent plotting and find a lot the subject matter related to the art world and its artists quite relateable. The acting is enjoyable and made the plot work despite its choppiness. All in all, I believe the movie worked thanks to actors involved and the art gallery finale had alot of a life imitating art that saved the flim.

This movie is perfect for the art world lover...or the fan of any one of the brilliant cast. Danny Huston should play the devil in some film, because in this one he is devilish. devilishly handsome. Yes, it can be boring at times with the artsy fartsy world of art collecting. But, it did open my eyes to the price of art. many sub stories, many characters. The best part [spoiler alert] was when G. Anderson [Skully] walks in on Hustons gay love affair after thinking for years that he was a straight art dealer! Priceless!
Some nudity, some swinging dicks, some breasts, with silver art piercings. Some confusing lesbian sub story, but they lost me on that one. Death, suicide, and bids of 28 million for a painting named...Boogie Woogie.

a fun and entertaining art house film about the art world with a great ensemble cast playing the most interesting characters you'll see.

Really disappointed in the flow between characters and their scenes. Still entertaining to watch, just not needed in your library.
Nice cast!

As I enjoy both art and pretty women, I thought I'd like this movie. 'Got the blu ray, whose picture quality is beautiful HD.

As to the story, yikes. Here again, I like the art world, and thus I could enjoy the subject matter more than many. Heather Graham and Amanda Seyfried are HOT ladies, no doubt about it. But the story--how stupid, dull, and depressing--but mostly dull. VERY negative, with no humor to experience, no creativity in the story. Just people using other people throughout, as expected, but with no funny or interesting twists. There are no likable characters except for Seyfried, whose character, like the others, is little-developed. Even the final lines of the film in the final scene, meant to be a clever send-off for viewers . . . were not clever in the slightest. Just dumb, like most of the rest of the dialog.

Was I unhappy that I watched it? No. But I was expecting so much more, o.k., at least a mildly interesting plot or a clever plot twist or two. Hopefully some "British-chic" qualities to the story or dialog. More engaging characters, at least (these characters were poorly developed, for the most part). This truly seemed like just a mediocre, pointless film put together by a film student, apart from the fact that it obviously used a medium-sized industry budget.

It's based on a book . . . which must be garbage.

Extras on the blu ray? Try none, apart from a trailer and TV spot that seem to be essentially the same 3-minute commercial.

Again, for the pretty women and the beautiful blu ray picture, and at $6.99, I give it 3 stars. It didn't put me to sleep; I was mildly entertained as I was just waiting for something to happen . . . even once.

Can't see myself ever watching it again, as long as there are alternative films to choose from in my collection (there are).
