Review of 'Blurred Lines: Inside the Art World'
But this is a nice documentary about the contemporary art world, with insights into some very sharp practices that border on fraud. I didn't get as angry as I would have watching a similar documentary about say banks, because I can't help but think of this as 'victim-less' crime - or at least one where it's hard to feel much sympathy for the victims. But the interlocking worlds of private super-rich buyers and public institutions are such that we are all being ripped off.
Watched on Netflix, a rare decent film there.
