The ArT of The STeAl

Pasatiempo - - Moving Images -

Don Ar­gott’s en­gross­ing doc­u­men­tary ex­am­ines the strug­gle to con­trol the Barnes Foun­da­tion and its peer­less paint­ings, val­ued in the bil­lions of dol­lars. Among the play­ers are the can­tan­ker­ous ty­coon who built the col­lec­tion, ques­tion­able phi­lan­thropists who want to con­trol it, and Penn­syl­va­nia politi­cians who use it as a step­ping­stone. This opin­ion­ated film tells only one side of the story, but it tells it in spell­bind­ing fashion and leaves view­ers pon­der­ing big is­sues about art, greed, and legacy. Not rated. 101 min­utes. The Screen, Santa Fe. ( James M. Keller) See story, Page 46.
