The uncomfortable merger of art and commerce leads to an unstable romantic triangle in this satiric comedy from director Jonathan Parker. Madeleine (Marley Shelton) is a beautiful young woman who runs an upscale art gallery in New York City.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Writer-director Jonathan Parker sets us up for a 90-minute debate on aesthetics and artistic integrity, and that's a tedious exercise in any medium."
‑ Ian Buckwalter, NPR
"(Untitled) asks a lot of intriguing questions -- more intriguing than the film itself."
‑ Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"...spry and spiky satire..."
‑ Chris Barsanti, Filmcritic.com
"Woody Allen might have passed on making this film 35 years ago because it was too dated and middlebrow."
‑ Peter Keough, Boston Phoenix
"...starts to feel like a one trick pony."
‑ Laura Clifford, Reeling Reviews
"Skewers the world of contemporary art in a way that's insightful and funny without becoming a broad parody."
‑ Eric D. Snider, Film.com
"A serious comedy in which the assorted players - a couple of artists, some gallerists, and the people who attend (or don't attend) their shows - discuss what art is, what it should aspire to be, and what kind of people collect, exhibit, and consider it."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"The characters...are wrapped up in their own perceptions of their greatness and are an odious lot. This is fitting for the film but leaves the viewer without a character to like."
‑ Robin Clifford, Reeling Reviews
"A very funny and on-the-nose takedown of artsy pretension."
‑ Tricia Olszewski, Washington City Paper
"The performances here are all stellar, and narrative movies that take the making of art seriously are a rare breed indeed."
‑ Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
"The impenetrable gallery jargon is quite funny at first, and the brothers' twisted relationship is set up nicely, but the movie errs when it takes itself seriously."
‑ John Hartl, Seattle Times
"Has the punctuation and the thinness of a gallery wall label."
‑ Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"Right away, you wonder if the filmmakers are trying hard enough."
‑ Gary Thompson, Philadelphia Daily News
"Art School Confidential goes for its doctorate in Jonathan Parker's bitchy, hilarious (Untitled), the story of two pretentious brothers jealously jousting with each other in the dog-eat-dog world of fine-art cred."
‑ Kelly Vance, East Bay Express
"Those who don't know art but who know what they like are likely to come away from "(Untitled)" thinking "Gee, I could have done that.""
‑ Peter Sobczynski, eFilmCritic.com
