(Untitled) dir. Jonathan Parker (new film / trailer)

by Tyler Gould

1 October 2009

 

Adam Goldberg and Marley Shelton engage in what appears to be feature-length japery at the expense of the contemporary art world. One character in the trailer says, of an artist’s work, “What attracts me to his work is how uncomfortable it makes me feel.” Goldberg’s character centers his performance art around the kicking of a metal bucket. If you are of a mind that thinks “contemporary art is impenetrable nonsense”, you’ll probably find a few chuckles at a culture depicted as being as self-important as it is asinine, but if you find that notion frustrating to no end, maybe avoid (Untitled) when it hits theaters October 23rd.
