The Netflix documentary Made You Look will be turned into a revealing book

The documentary about the Netflix art scandal “Made You Look” is being turned into a revealing book by series director Barry Avrich.

“The book is a mix of ‘Succession’ and ‘Billions’ and ‘Catch Me If You Can’, the only difference is that it’s all true,” Barry said.

The book will be published in 2025 by Post Hill Press.

“The book is a mix of ‘Succession’ and ‘Billions’ and ‘Catch Me If You Can’, the only difference is that it’s all true,” Barry said.

“Audiences are craving crime stories. Readers will be caught up in all the twists and turns that take place in one of the most bizarre and sensational scams the world has ever seen,” he added.

It delves deeper into new evidence and inside stories about how a bizarre art dealer, a master forger, and con artists managed to con the art world for more than a decade.

The scams have actually forged works by Robert Motherwell, Pollock, Rothko and others, and duped billionaire collectors, museums and even the media.

Along with the book, a feature film is in development, Page Six reported.

“I Made You Look” – Documentary Film

Made You Look: A True Story About Fake Art, directed by Barry Avrich, is a 2020 American crime documentary about the largest art fraud in American history set in the New York art world.

It is based on the notorious Knoedler Gallery art scandal. The New York gallery sold about $80 million worth of fake paintings that appear to have been made by Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock and others.

The works were actually made in a Queen’s garage by a master forger and a mathematics professor.

The scandal was finally uncovered by the FBI and the gallery owned by Michael Hammer was closed in 2011.

The documentary upon its release continues to be loved by viewers alike.

One user on X (formerly Twitter) wrote: “I always love a good art documentary with a bit of crime thrown in, it’s crazy to realize how much these art galleries make selling art in contrast to the fact that the artists themselves usually earn close to $0. something”. )

“Made You Look (2020) is also a very good documentary about fake art. #Netflix #movie 5/5 stars,” another wrote.
