  • The movie is an entertaining stroll through a colorful gallery of characters including, in villain mode, former Metropolitan Museum of Art director Thomas Hoving. "She knows nothing.

  • Fascinatingly ambiguous tale and bizarre cast of characters make it one of the more entertaining documentaries in recent memory. show more
