Amir Bar-Lev's engrossing documentary about a four-year-old Binghamton, New York toddler named Marla Olmstead and her homemade paintings opens up a slew of wide-ranging discussions about the nature of art, the role of criticism, the cult of celebrity, backstage parenting, over-commercialization, etc. All this because little Marla's abstract impressionistic canvases — some might call them messy kid stuff — have sold for thousands in big-name galleries and brought her print and TV notoriety, including much skepticism. Except for some awkward intrusion into the story by director-producer Bar-Lev, this is a well done, thoughtful investigation into yet another 21st-century media-crazy hornet's nest.
