Between the pandemic and that little cold snap last week, we’ve blown through every murder documentary we can find.
But now we have a palate (and palette) cleanser.
Today, Netflix debuts the 2020 documentary, Made You Look: A True Story About Fake Art. Though it doesn’t involve actual murder, the perpetrators of a multi-million-dollar scheme definitely slay the art world.
Would you be able to spot a fake? We probably couldn’t, considering that most of our home’s art comes from Spencer Gifts and Magic Eye kiosks from our hometown mall circa 1993.
The mystery all starts with a Mr. X, who in some versions of his backstory, doesn’t want his identity revealed because he was hiding the fact that he was gay. Other versions are even more questionable.
But there’s so much more to the story and you’ll be hooked.
And unlike most of the incredible documentary series on Netflix right now, this film will only take up 90 minutes of your time instead of hours.
Wonder if any of this art was ever in the Cecil Hotel.
