The Art of the Steal (2009)

Director: Don Argott

Albert C. Barnes had one of the finest collections of Post-Impressionist paintings in his home in a suburb of Philadelphia. After his death in 1951, the house was turned into a museum. Last year, Barnes' collection moved to the heart of Philadelphia, despite the fact that it went against the collector's will. Don Agott's doc reveals the legal and financial concerns surrounding this move. It sounds stuffy, but Argott's direction lets the film play out like a tense caper.
