Despite the inside art-market speak, “Untitled” is an amusing enough romantic romp with plenty of Woody Allen-style back-and-forth banter. When a collector shows a date around his apartment filled with incomprehensible contemporary work, she meekly explains that she’s always liked Matisse; the collector looks blankly and says, “I’m not familiar with his work.” And when Madeleine asks Adrian what she thinks of a Christopher Wool-like painting that reads “No You Shut Up,” Ben responds, “I can relate to the words.” Though the go-go early-Aughties atmosphere can feel a little passé at times, the film’s message, “That everybody’s a critic,” is timeless.
