In the gripping documentary, director Nicholas Bruckman masterfully delves into the intricate and often perplexing world of the forty-billion-dollar NFT (non-fungible token) digital art sphere, chronicling its meteoric rise and eventual fall. Through a combination of candid interviews, vérité footage, and powerful archival film, Bruckman expertly weaves together the multifaceted story of this groundbreaking phenomenon.


The film introduces us to a rich tapestry of artists who have found success in this new artistic landscape, such as Beeple, the creator of the record-breaking $69 million artwork.

Minted spans the entire arc of the NFT craze, from its explosive beginnings in 2021 to its dramatic crash in 2022. Bruckman doesn't shy away from presenting the critical voices within the NFT conversation and gives ample screen time to critics who question the long-term viability and social implications of NFTs. It's a fascinating exploration of the perils and possibilities of this volatile and vibrant world, offering insights into the very essence of human creativity, the value of art, and the transformative power of technology.––Dan Hunt
