The Price of Everything

The central question at the core of Nathaniel Kahn’s The Price of Everything is how importantly, or inherently, is money connected to art?  The answer reveals itself through the understanding of artists, historians and dealers, with that importance going higher as monetary power does.  In other words, this documentary ultimately makes two points: art is inherently financial, and capitalism will slowly but surely cause the demise of it.
