Fun little thing with witty fast dialogue. Loved the beginning part where they goofed on the beatnik, abstract art 'performance painting' scene in apt.
The look on Douglas's face was priceless. Hollywood love for realism vs the other world of sheer form played out through lawyer/artist opposites.
What is the place for an actor in a realm of art that doesn't concern itself with portraying the real world through lines, action, props, direction, etc.?
Might as well be just hanging around back stage painting the walls.
Good to know some artists did hang onto realism through 60s 70s even if just in Pop style of advertising. That scene of paint smearing just set it on right path for me. Knew they had something going on.
Kept me wondering what was coming up next. "Stale bread is on the bottom"! What the? Fun.
