Reviews

Nella Londra contemporanea si intrecciano le storie di collezionisti, artisti, imprenditori e commercianti tutti con un unico scopo nella vita: ottenere fama, sesso, denaro e salire rapidamente la scala sociale. La storia è incentrata intorno all'acquisto di un'opera di Mondrian dal titolo Broadway Boogie Woogie. Il film narra le vicende dei mercanti d'arte, collezionisti, artisti e wannabees, tutti disposti a usare ogni mezzo necessario per realizzare le loro ambizioni personali. Ogni storia parallela precipita verso la sua conclusione depravata ed egoista, un finale inaspettato riorganizzerà però tutte le storie.

3.0 out of 5 stars Heartless Art 18 Aug 2010
By Mr. J. C. Clubb VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Plot:

"Boogie Woogie" traces the triumphs and pitfalls of several archetypical representatives of the London contemporary art world. The lives of collectors, owners, dealers, artists and their partners and employees interweave in a world of trendy hysteria, stupid money, hedonistic indulgence, Machiavellian ambition, British pomposity, betrayal, sex and old fashioned greed. Much of the action is centred on a piece of modern art owned by an ailing and frail yet aggressively stubborn and proud old man, Mr Alfred Rhinegold (Christopher Lee). His entire status revolves around his ownership of the piece, called "Boogie Woogie", which he will not part with no matter the price. Meanwhile his wife (Joanna Lumley) struggles with their debts in order to retain the high standard London living they enjoy and connives behind his back with their manservant to sell the work. Outside of their lives a greedy dealer with his own obscure private desires works hard to organize the sale of the piece to an extremely rich and obsessive collector. Within the dealers own business lurk ambitious and vulnerable underlings and around it swim both predatory and tragic wannabes. As for the collector himself, his wife (Gillian Anderson) will bring matters startlingly to a head with his prized art collection...

Review:

I am often very sceptical about "star studded" movies. Animated films tend to have a distinctively higher record for pulling it off, but most big budget blockbusters or art films (the most common places to find an ensemble of established movie actors) that boast an all-star cast are their own worst enemy. The blockbusters are often so painfully cynical in their conception and execution that everything becomes substandard, even the acting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good, funny, unpredictable film :) 6 April 2010
Format:DVD
The movie was nothing like I expected, it was really enjoyable and entertaining! I went to the premiere at the Edinburgh Film Festival last year. I was expecting a really arty, obscure, sex filled, bizarre film, but it was nothing like that! It was very funny and clever and although there is quite a lot of nudity it didn't feel exploitative.

Gillian Anderson has a cute English accent and the character she plays is really different to what I expected. Although she is a snob in the art world, she actually plays a really naive, confused woman! It is all played for laughs, you don't have that much sympathy for the character (although I had some), but it is a really different character from those she has played in the past.

Although, being a fan, I focused primarily on Gillian's performance, kudos must go to Alan Cumming who I thought was really wonderful in the movie. His performance really gave the film an emotional heart.

I have no idea why it has taken so long to get this film distributed, it is highly enjoyable and much better than lots of the junk at the cinema. If you are a Gillian fan, she has some priceless scenes to look forward to, if you are just a movie fan in general it's a great little film, which I'd definitely recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars In the name of art 9 April 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Art is business as every collector will tell you. In contemporary London, an old man in dire straits tries to salvage his last belonging (a Mondrian painting, the world famous Boogie-Woogie), from the predatory instincts of his wife who hopes to get a huge price for it thanks to an unscrupulous gallerist. No deep feelings here, only a charming, witty and fast-paced comedy beautifully served by a host of skilled actors and actresses who seem to enjoy the show.
I would recommend this film to anyone who ever fell in love with Heather Graham's incredibly radiant smile or with Amanda Seyfried's
subversive good looks and dead-pan humor. Stellan Skarsgard seems as well to revel in this kind of light-hearted cynicism. Comedy is what we need in those troubled times. Come to think of it: how many smiling, charming and optimistic characters did you meeet lately in your neighbourhood ?

2.0 out of 5 stars not quite sure 20 Mar 2011
Format:DVD
I went into this film without knowing anything about it so wasn't sure what to expect. It's generally a fairly good film, however, i found it to be fairly flat in some places, as though the film didn't really know where it was going and it was struggling for a storyline. It also seems to jump ahead, as though there are a few scenes missing from the film. The acting is played very well by all actors which helped make the film watchable. It would of recieved 3 stars, however, in 1 scene, a character looses her deformed baby and her new friend mounts it in a glass box and gives it to her as a present (as to which she then cries her eyes out). No explanation is given as to why he does this, and it feels totaly out of place in this film. And far from being a prude, i found it to be rather disturbing. Maybe the reasons are explained in the book, but going by the merits of watching this film, i have no desire to read the book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Amazing cast, amazingly pretentious.... 17 Jan 2014
Format:DVD
London's contemporary art world, everyone has a hustle.

Art Spindle runs a high-end gallery and he hopes to flip a painting for millions. One of his assistants, Beth, is sleeping with Art's most acquisitive client, Bob Macclestone.

Beth wants Bob to set her up in her own gallery, so she helps him go behind Art's back for the painting.

Bob's wife, Jean, sets her eye on a young conceptual artist, Jo, who lusts after Art's newest assistant, Paige.

Meanwhile, self-absorbed lesbian Filmmaker is chewing her way through friends and lovers looking to make it. If she dumps her agent, Beth may give her a show.....

The cast are great, and the film looks amazing, even though it took me ten minutes to realise the film wasn't set in the seventies, but all in all, it's just too busy, and it gets lost up its own backside.

The director must think that when you get such a beautiful cast, things like plot, narrative, and character study do not really matter, just throw in a couple of nude scenes and the public will be interested.

It seems that this must of been a pet project for him, and I guess he's some kind of 'luvvie' in theatre, but the man cannot direct.

It's full of people moaning about money and being good looking and wanting more and more, and then losing it all and shouting, and taking drugs and alcohol.

If I want that, I can just go into the city on a Saturday night.

Awful and pretentious, but Winstone is fantastic.
