Critic Reviews

  1. Those willing to meet (Untitled) even part way will discover a comedy of intelligence and wit, with some strong performances.
  2. The whole cast is museum quality, and the ''music'' performances are pitch-perfect in their dissonance.
  3. 88
    A comedy worthy of the best Woody Allen, and Adrian is not unlike Woody's persona: a sincere, intense, insecure nebbish, hopeless with women, aiming for greatness.
  4. 75
    Significantly cleverer than its moniker, even though it picks for its satire one of the most inviting targets on record: the world of contemporary art.
  5. 75
    Walking the line between the movie’s broad strokes and its near-perfect pitch is the art itself, which has been designed and constructed by a team of smart designers.
  6. If “(Untitled)” shrewdly hedges its bets about the value of it all, it is ultimately on the side of experimental music and art and their champions, no matter how eccentric. For that alone this brave little movie deserves an audience.
  7. As in the best movie satires, there's a solid core of truth informing director Jonathan Parker's (Untitled), which takes on the New York art and music worlds in one smart and funny swoop.
  8. (Untitled) assembles a collection of vivid character-types, sometimes a breath short of caricature. But for all its sharp comic angles, Jonathan Parker's film takes its central questions seriously and avoids the pat follow-your-bliss answers Hollywood prefers.
  9. 67
    The three main characters aren’t cardboard-cutout poseurs, and for that alone, (Untitled) stands apart.
  10. Reviewed by: Ian Buckwalter
    (Untitled) does have great moments, particularly in its technical execution -- the director began his career as a musician, and his command of sound design is particularly imaginative.
  11. 50
    This dark comedy by screenwriters Jonathan Parker and Catherine DiNapoli frequently uses a .44 Magnum when a pea shooter would suffice.
  12. A surer hand behind the camera might’ve finessed the jokes more effectively, or established a consistent and satisfying tone.
  13. Satire without teeth is sort of a mewling entity that brings little into sharp focus. Nevertheless, the performances here are all stellar, and narrative movies that take the making of art seriously are a rare breed indeed.
  14. 50
    Although (Untitled) makes a spirited effort to mine comedy from its outre characters and the orbits they inhabit, the picture feels thin and wan, like a joke you've heard 100 times too many.
  15. The film veers between cutting parody and cliche, threatening to become interesting at any moment, but never quite doing so.
  16. A film only Hilton Kramer could love, (Untitled) aims wide and misses.
  17. In mistaking obvious observations for cutting insight, writer-director Jonathan Parker becomes what he lampoons.
  18. 25
    The movie (Untitled) is a tinny satire destined to go "(Unwatched)" because it is "(Uninteresting)."
  19. (Untitled)’s onslaught of self-indulgent bohos and art-vs.-commerce clichés are as ersatz as their objects of scorn.
