What sets "Beltracchi: The Art of Forgery" apart is how breezily compassionate it is toward a master deceiver and how damning its tone is toward a greedy art world that allowed him to flourish.

Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, 2015-08-20

 

[An] engaging, funny documentary ...

Farran Smith Nehme, New York Post, 2015-08-20

 

A highly enjoyable look at a career spent duping the art world.

John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter, 2015-08-20

 

Beltracchi: The Art of Forgery makes us question not only art, but the experts who claim to understand it best.

Amy Brady, Village Voice, 2015-08-18

 

While Mr. Beltracchi is an agreeable raconteur, and is much more knowledgeable than a mere armchair art historian, "Beltracchi: The Art of Forgery" is a case in which a great documentary topic hasn't yielded a great documentary.

Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times, 2015-08-18
