From Nathaniel Kahn’s The Price of Everything to Dan Gilroy’s Velvet Buzzsaw, films have pivoted to an illustrious and mysterious source of inspiration: the art world. Milorad Krstic’s Ruben Brandt, Collector is the category’s newest addition—and by far the most visually compelling. Ruben is an art therapist who keeps having nightmares where famous paintings try to kill him. Mimi is a circus performer turned art thief who, along with a ragtag group of Ruben’s patients, executes elaborate heists to steal what’s keeping him up at night. The setup takes a little too long to come together, and some of the plotlines feel forced and unnecessary, but the film’s inventive mixed animation style and character designs reminiscent of Picasso’s cubist portraits make it worth watching in spite of its narrative flaws.
