Movie Info

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."

Critic Reviews for Ruben Brandt, Collector

All Critics (63) | Top Critics (16)

A satisfying heist movie, animated or live-action, requires more selectivity and less clutter than this one. The movie dashes by door after door, but it lacks the key.

March 7, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

If you love art, "Ruben Brandt, Collector" is a non-stop visual fest, from the first frame till the last.

March 6, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Writer-director Milorad Krstic pads out what probably should have been a fascinating animated short - about an art therapist who is himself tormented by nightmares featuring characters from famous paintings - with drawn-out bits of ludicrous action.

March 1, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

This is Krstic's first feature and it's obvious that he has visual flair to spare. If he can only find a story worthy of it, he'd have a real work of film art.

February 28, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Ruben's story may be as oddly illogical as any of his nightmares, but the animation here is a dreamy delight.

February 28, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Something this larky should be swifter and more compact; instead, "Ruben Brandt, Collector" feels like a sneakily pretentious pastiche, and not much else.
