A comedy worthy of the best of Woody Allen... (Untitled) wittly skewers the conventions and traditions of the avant-garde scene. - --Roger Ebert

Madeleine Gray (Marley Shelton) is a tony gallerist who prides herself on showing only what she calls "non-commercial work.Read more ›
The film is headlined by an inspired Marley Shelton. I have been familiar with Shelton's work, but she has never been particularly vivid for me. Here, though, she shines with much sexiness and great comedic timing as a ritzy gallerist torn between two brothers. She represents one brother as a commercial venture, selling his paintings to institutional settings. His work, all variations of the same abstract theme, is not avant garde enough for a place in her gallery--but it sure does pay the bills! She is intrigued by his aloof sibling, Adam Goldberg, a rather unpleasant sound artist. Goldberg's work generally produces a riotous cacophony of noise which Shelton finds appealing.Read more ›
In any case, film digs into questions of today's state of the contemporary art. What is art? Who is the true artist - the one who can actually support himself by selling his paintings while not being recognised by any of the major art museums, or the artist whose work is bought by clueless rich people trying to make themselves look sophisticated by collecting trash and displaying it in their huge lofts? How those professional relationships translate themselves into personal ones?
I found many moments of this film funny - particularly the performing art one (kicking the bucket). Not a movie for shallow audiences - I am sure they would get bored by it very quickly.

I get the satire, I really do. I get that they are taking shots at the snobs that go with the flavor of the moment. I get that this is really poking fun at the sheep in the mob. Read morePublished 23 days ago by Russell S
Untitled is often interesting and amusing, but confusing as a comedy. The ones who ridicule are hypocritical and the ones being ridiculed are sympathetic (to an extent). Read morePublished 4 months ago by rbrogan3
