San Francisco Chronicle
Absorbing and exquisite. Full Review
Dave Kehr
The New York Times
Obscure by nature and unwieldy by design, Darger's work is difficult to confront and consume; Ms. Yu has brought it a little closer, and that is as fine a public service as an art documentary can provide. Full Review
Frank Scheck
The Hollywood Reporter
A fascinating examination of a mysterious life and the truly bizarre art that it spawned. Full Review
Jami Bernard
New York Daily News
Even without much in the way of hard facts, Yu makes intuitive leaps, using animated segments to bring to life Darger's work, and therefore the man - or as much of him as it is possible to fathom. Full Review
Joe Leydon
Documentarian Jessica Yu employs everything from animation and voiceover thesping to archival documents and eyewitness accounts while examining Henry Darger, a self-taught artist who has been posthumously lionized as a visionary genius. Full Review
