The Square: A Review

This past Saturday, after working on my art for most of the day, I finished up, and watched a movie about the art world. Here is a very quick review of The Square.

I recently watched the film The Square. Here are some quick thoughts:

I like just about anything that critiques the art world (in part because it is so foreign to me), so I had been looking forward to seeing The Square for a while. If, like me, it’s a critique you’re looking for, this film is for you – it pulls no punches.

Overall, I liked this movie. I thought it was a bit-long, and at times slow, but when it picks up, it really nails it. Two scenes in particular, the performance (in the photo above), and the press conference near the end of the film are exceptional.

I really don’t want to give too much away, and I promised a very short review, so, if you like artsy films about art, this one’s worth checking out.
