Time Out New York
A breezily entertaining profile of painter, puppeteer and performer Wayne White, Beauty Is Embarrassing places the kindhearted, foulmouthed subject front and center. Full Review
Ann Hornaday
Washington Post
Beauty Is Embarrassing stays true to White's own exacting standards: It's thoughtful, skillfully executed and pure pop pleasure, from start to finish. Full Review
Gary Goldstein
Los Angeles Times
As one observer here aptly - and non-hyperbolically - sums it up, White is "a founding father of the current state of pop art." Full Review
Kimberley Jones
Austin Chronicle
The film is studded with stirring moments of surprise. Full Review
Mike Scott
New Orleans Times-Picayune
The result is an artist profile that doesn't feel like the standard, stuffy artist profile. Instead, Beauty is Embarrassing is an entertaining whimsy that, like White, never takes itself too seriously, doesn't overstay its welcome and never, ever underestimates the value of a chuckle. Full Review
