About This Event

Mixing Hollywood flair with the element of surprise, Talk Cinema offers sneak previews of new independent and foreign films from Cannes, Sundance, Toronto and other internationally ranked film festivals, personally selected by nationally recognized film critic Harlan Jacobson. His selections may include an award-winning drama, an outrageous indie comedy, a provocative documentary or the next breakout hit. Audiences are among the first to see new movies and then engage in critical discussions led by film scholars and special guests.

Ruben Brandt, a famous psychotherapist, is forced to steal 13 paintings from the world’s renowned museums and private collections to prevent his suffering from terrible nightmares he has as a result of subliminal messaging he received as a child. Accompanied by his four patients, he and his band of thieves strike regularly and with great success: the Louvre, Tate, Uffizi, Hermitage, the Museum of Modern Art.

“The Collector” quickly becomes the most wanted criminal in the world. Gangsters and headhunters chase him around the world while the reward for his capture keeps rising, approaching a hundred million dollars. A cartel of insurance companies entrusts Mike Kowalski, a private detective and leading expert on art theft, to solve the “Collector Case.”

Directed by Milorad Krstic, 2018. Hungary. 96 minutes.
