Art and Craft ★★★★★

Wonderful. An amazing and astonishing documentary about art forgery, mental illness, loneliness and isolation.

Mark Landis, the hero or villain depending on which side of the art forgery debate you are on, takes centre stage in a moving story of his life and dedication to copying artworks over several decades.

Landis acts as a philanthropist throughout the film documenting how he gave away his work. Driven more by a desire to connect with others, rather than with the intention of defrauding curators and collectors, he took pleasure in giving the work away for free.

Brazen and compelling, the story of Landis is incredible and told without judgment or bias.
