Yet the film never really simmers with the kind of tension required to keep you hooked and, as events progress, it sheds its air of superiority to reveal itself as quite a schlocky thriller.

It's lively talk, with attractive performances, but you can't help wondering when the thriller end of the bargain is meant to kick in.

A slow-burn noir thriller, this European art-world movie spins a rather densely wordy adventure with a superbly eclectic cast.

Bang is weirdly listless, and the early spark of passion between him and Debicki gets lost in a muddle of pretentious chatter that lacks the bite to sell itself as consciously self-satirising
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

A complex thriller set in the world of fine art, The Burnt Orange Heresy is no masterpiece but well worth looking at, not least for the exquisitely agonising spectacle of Mick Jagger acting his heart out, if not his lips off.

The Burnt Orange Heresy is a tight, smart mystery built on an unusual premise with great actors who are not overexposed.

Like the painting that gives the film its title, it's not as profound as it makes itself out to be - deliberately so. That's part of its insouciant allure.

Mick Jagger plays manipulative art dealer Joseph Cassidy, a man of wealth and fame, in "The Burnt Orange Heresy," an elegant thriller that carefully builds to a rather surprising conclusion.

Director Giuseppe Capotondi... gets fine performances from everyone, even though their characters and the story never snap into satisfying focus.

The third act of Heresy is where the film really shines, despite its insistence on driving home an ultimately meaningless metaphor. The finale is a well-executed one, designed to keep you on the edge of your seat.
