directed by Benjamin Ree
by Walter Chaw Shot over the course of three years, Benjamin Ree's documentary The Painter and the Thief details the relationship that blooms between artist Barbora Kysilkova and a man, Karl-Bertil Nordland, who stole two of her paintings from a gallery. That's it. You should see this movie and then come back here because I want to talk about it with someone--but you should see it first. Okay. You back?
