  • bryanvmh's rating of the film The Maestro: King of the Cowboy Artists

    Artist makes myriad self-portraits of cowboys but aspires to be the next Andy Warhol. He hates money (but sold his first ever painting for $1,000 - some kind of record) and makes massive and explicitly racist artworks (making a tool he is using into a Native figure in order to paint the divine "Destiny" of general custer), but dag nabbit- if he ain't a darn good craftsman and stitcher I sure as heck don't know who is
