    "This movie was pretty much a can't miss. The source material was outstanding, and the main actors were worthy of the material. It stands the test of time as a great story about a great artist and piece of art."

    "Edvard Munch is a phenomenal movie. We all know of the art that he created, but I really enjoyed learning the story of the man behind the art. A truly gripping and inspiring story that is well told."

    "Camille Claudel was one of those films that really helped inspire me when I was running into roadblocks in my work. Learning about the artist and the lifestyle she led really helped to change my perspective and allow me to start thinking outside the box. I recommend it for any fan or anyone who's interested in an interesting biopic."

    "Pollock is a movie about the famous painter of the same name. It's pretty artsy and slow moving, but if you're in the mood for such things, the subject is actually really interesting."

    "Basquiat is a movie I watched on a whim. I had never heard of Jeffrey Wright, and I had neve heard of his character, Jean-Michel Basquiat. I really enjoyed the movie and the topic of an unusual style of art (graffiti). From what I understand, the movie is highly accurate."
