"Slick, happily one-sided"

Colin Dabkowski of the Buffalo News on "The Art of the Steal": "We don’t get nearly enough face time from those in favor of the move, which seems attributable as much to the filmmaker’s bias as it is to those who refused to be interviewed for the project. Some of the finer nuances in the battle between Barnes’ rigid and nigh pig-headed intentions and the laudable desire for more people to draw wonder from the art he collected go unexplored in favor of grandiose polemics."
