ART HISTORY delves into the emotional minefield of intimate low-budget filmmaking. Sam, a film director, has feelings for Juliette, the lead actress in his current production. He must maintain a professional relationship with her while they work on a sexually explicit relationship drama centered on a couple's one night stand. All is going well until Juliette and her co-star, Eric, develop feelings for each other that they explore off camera.
Sam is happy that his actors have such good chemistry, but feels jealous at the same time. Juliette feels Sam's shifting moods and does her best to show him affection, but his own inner struggles threaten to derail the production. (Joe Swanberg Films)… Expand

75The staging of this dissociative roundelay is still presented in a forcefully lo-fi format, prizing roughly framed shots, improvisation, and flat characters, but there are ever clearer indications that Swanberg is producing something more than empty-headed slacker cinema.
0Somebody must think Joe Swanberg's mumblecore mush is worth the time it takes to watch it, because he keeps making it. But anyone who sees his insufferable Art History and doesn't wish for the 74 minutes back has an empty life indeed.
