"If this movie would have come out in 1982, it would have been amazing. Released now it's a sequel that's loyal to the original and makes little concessions to "the market". Some plot weakness here and there doesn't stop it from being a relevant movie. Watch or re-watch the original first."

"This movie put forward a very interesting discussion about the art market, the role of experts, the importance (or lack of) of originality and the world of art in general. It's quite frantic and hard to follow, but Wells is charming and Oja is beautiful. Anyhow I think that the fast phase could be very intentional. Like in a magic trick, things happen to fast for you to understand, and there is a beautiful assistant to keep you interested (and make sure you understand even less)."

"Great acting, great photography, everything great, but the plot. Honestly I don't get the point of the movie. We get to see the low life quality of common people in NY, but non of that is developed. The main character is extremely naive and the swings of his motivations don't make sense. No, is not because he is a troubled veteran. Is just a bad scripting. Spoiler: Cherry on the cake, he becomes a killer that is regarded as a hero."

"Stylistically beautiful. Keeps you interested throughout the relatively short 90 min. Touches several topics without going very deep into any, but not every movie has to. "

"This movie tries to be Solaris, 2001 and Blade Runner. It fails. Beautiful photography, but the plot is just not there."

"The bad guys are weed smoking blacks, except the big boss and his gang who are Italians. And the heroes are just killing them all. What a nice message. And yes I know is supposed to be just a comedy, but the message is still there."
