    Where to begin. The film opens with narration reminding us Americans are “provincial” and our only ONLY hope was European artists like de Kooning, who himself claims Europe is depressing. The lack of attribution for the many paintings shown is irritating. Overall, I’d skip this, unless it’s free.
