      Andrea Gronvall Chicago Reader [Director Nathaniel Kahn] marshals a lively parade of its players. Mar 3, 2020 Full Review David Stratton The Australian [The Price of Everything] succeeds in being educational and entertaining as well as profoundly disturbing. Rated: 4/5 Mar 8, 2019 Full Review Sandra Hall Sydney Morning Herald It's rare to get such a frank and authoritative view of the market and its flaws. Kahn has returned from his trip down the rabbit hole with a clear-eyed and enthralling picture of what he found there. Rated: 4/5 Mar 6, 2019 Full Review Vadim Rizov Filmmaker Magazine The general subject is how the contemporary art market came to be so lucrative, and Kahn gets answers — this may be an entry-level primer that’s absolutely a standard-format HBO doc, but I knew none of this, so the answers were fascinating. Jan 5, 2023 Full Review Dan Schindel Hyperallergic This movie may not be able to make full sense of the trends, but it's a great peek into how the gamblers operate. Feb 10, 2020 Full Review Tom Augustine New Zealand Herald [The Price of Everything] is as pure an expression of the haves-and-have-nots as any you'll see on screen this year. Rated: 4/5 Jul 3, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      Janusz N I think that it's a great film Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/30/22 Full Review lars p If you are into modern art THIS is a must see! I love art and expected to enjoy the film. I do not like it, I love it! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Good documentary about art and money. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Rotten tomatoes is fake news. They refuse to let me review Captain Marvel. They fabricate their review outcomes. A disgrace. Rotten Tomatoes is corrupt. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member The Price of Everything takes us through the rarefied are of a Sothebyï¿ 1/2 1/2 1/2 1/2 1/2(TM)s art auction, and by withholding judgment, we are allowed to come to our own conclusions. The camera lingers on various pieces of modern art as different players are speaking, giving us the chance to decide for ourselves what we would bid for a specific piece of art. Are we all being hoodwinked by the glitz and wealth surrounding this crazy art scene? Are the collectors and critics under the spell of a type of cult? Watching Koontzï¿ 1/2 1/2 1/2 1/2 1/2(TM) rooftop monologue as he surveys one of his sculptures, one cant help but ask these questions. Representational artist West Frazier in a recent interview made the observation that important things are happening in the regional art scenes around the country, perhaps even more important than the lofty scene in New York. The representational artists such as Frazier sell their pieces for much more modest sums, and supplement their income by teaching workshops to the hobbyists and aspiring artists. These workshops frequently sell out well in advance, because people actually want to learn to paint representational art. And, the artists are approachable, regular people. In the end, Iï¿ 1/2 1/2 1/2 1/2 1/2(TM)d take a Richard Schmid or a Scott Christensen over any one of the pieces on display at Sothebyï¿ 1/2 1/2 1/2 1/2 1/2(TM)s auction house. But time will be the ultimate arbiter. In the end, will the pieces here be views as masterworks of art, or as mere artifacts of that provide clues to a bygone period and culture. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Decent exposure to the 1% sector of the arts but its narrow focus hardly sheds light on how the art world functions as a whole.
