This is a great little documentary about an artist most everyone has an opinion about but whom very little it seems is actually known. But the greater arch of the documentary isn't so much the work of Cindy Sherman or even the story of the man she dated for almost a decade. This is a film about the overvaluation and rockstar status of anointed artists the world over. A good companion piece to this film would be Simon Doonan's recent article in Slate about the "post-skill" movement which is so popular. Sherman is such a great example of this systemic hype surrounding the art world. Which is not to suggest that Sherman herself is not talented, but rather that she lives a charmed life despite having no idea she lives in a bubble.
Great film. If you love art but hate the art world its a must see.
