Boogie Woogie (2009, Duncan Ward)

This is a reasonably amusing, reasonably on satire of the London art world which could well be called the Short Cuts of art world movies – at least it aspires to be that. There’s an All Star cast, there are lots of inter-cut stories, there’s a fairly ruthless attitude towards many of the characters.

Not having spent any time in these circles, I assume that most of this is fairly spot on. The only real issue for me is that it’s not consistently entertaining. (Well, I guess the other one would be: who cares about the problems of rich art snobs?)

But I appreciate satires that are more ruthless than funny more than I appreciate satires that are more funny than ruthless, so I’ll take this one. It’s not Short Cuts (what is?) but it’s still alright.

7/10
