Atom User Reviews for The Last Vermeer
as someone very interested in WW2 and art I enjoyed this movie very much. But, if you're not interested in either of those things you might find it boring.
I liked the movie and very much enjoyed learning about this historical event.
While the legal stuff provides the film’s crowd-pleasing element, some of the foundational building blocks give The Last Vermeer a little heft, elevating it to a level where one is almost tempted to call it a quasi-art house production.

All the lavish sets and gorgeous costumes in the world – and they are here – can’t quite cover over the cracks in Friedkin’s canvas, constructed by three writers from a non-fiction book.
