“Ruben Brandt, Collector is an intricately plotted, hyper-stylized piece of eye candy with art – the love of, the need for, the inability to escape from – at its wildly beating heart.” – Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
“Writer/director Milorad Krstic has combined his love for painting and film into an action thriller as surreal as it is familiar.” – Jared Mobarak, BuffaloVibe
“If you love art, “Ruben Brandt, Collector” is a non-stop visual feast, from the first frame till the last.” – Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
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 head-hunters 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.”
