      98% Tomatometer 80 Reviews 82% Audience Score 50+ Ratings THE LOST LEONARDO tells the inside story behind the Salvator Mundi, the most expensive painting ever sold at $450 million, claimed to be a long-lost masterpiece by Leonardo da Vinci. From the moment it is purchased from a shady New Orleans auction house, and its buyers discover masterful brushstrokes beneath its cheap restoration, the fate of the Salvator Mundi is driven by an insatiable quest for fame, money and power. But as its price soars, so do questions about its authenticity. Is this multi-million dollar painting actually by Leonardo -- or do certain power players simply want it to be? Unravelling the hidden agendas of the world's richest men and most powerful art institutions, THE LOST LEONARDO reveals how vested interests became all-important, and the truth secondary.

      Sandra Hall Sydney Morning Herald There have been several recent films about the pressures dictating prices on the international art market, but none have been as instructive -- or as enthralling -- as The Lost Leonardo. Rated: 4/5 Dec 6, 2021 Full Review Peter Bradshaw Guardian Perhaps Da Vinci should have painted Christ throwing the art dealers out of the temple. Rated: 4/5 Sep 10, 2021 Full Review Kevin Maher Times (UK) Sweet heavens, this is strong. Rated: 5/5 Sep 10, 2021 Full Review Sarah Ward Concrete Playground A detective story of a doco. It isn't a new approach, let alone a unique or unusual one, but it savvily relies upon the combined force of a ripping yarn and rollicking storytelling. Jul 8, 2022 Full Review Dan Bayer Next Best Picture Does what the best documentaries do: opens a door to an insular world and extends its scope to become something else entirely, showing how this small world can create ripples that expand throughout the larger world. Rated: 9/10 May 10, 2022 Full Review Carson Timar Clapper Even for audiences who do not care about the art industry or do not normally seek out documentaries, this is juicy and shocking enough to be a rewarding and engaging viewing experience.
