Boston's art scene revealed in a tangled web of cliches
2 August 1999 | by gonz30See all my reviews

NEVER MET PICASSO owes its name to its main character(brought to life well by Alexis Arquette), a struggling Boston painter. However, its essential plot seems to be the description of a dysfunctional family of sexually-confused artists. How original! Composed of the young gay painter(Arquette), his unbalanced mother (Margot Kidder: art imitating life?) who, among other quirks, discovers her lesbian side in her late 40's), this family also features the gay uncle, the distant father and a menagerie of "in-laws" and friends. These encompass artsy and psychic lesbians, dead lovers, black screaming queen artists, and even an S&M queen who is a history professor by day. If this collage of 90's stereotypes interest you more than an original, coherent plot, then NEVER MET PICASSO is definitely for you.
