'The Burnt Orange Heresy': Romantic Art Noir

If such a category exists. This is one of the more intelligently written screenplays I've seen in quite a while. It develops the main characters and bares their souls and agendas. Claes Bang is an art dealer/critic looking for his next opportunity when he meets the elongated Elizabeth Debicki at one of his lectures. A tryst leads to an "affair" which leads them to an old art collector (Jagger) who is hosting a well-know mysterious artist, Sutherland. Jagger proposes an introduction with an underlying motive that entices Bang. He is to befriend Sutherland, steal a painting, then destroy the rest. Alas, the wheels begin to come off the caper and things get ugly bit by bit.

Well acted, Jagger "okay". Compelling with an elevated standard of dialog. It's worth seeking out. (PS. Mick is starting to give Richards a run for his money.)

(This is one of the "small" movies the local picture show is presenting.)
