    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    The documentary is interesting as a human story. And anyone who loves the Kuchar brothers' films or underground cinema in general will take extra pleasure in it. show more

    Frank Scheck The Hollywood Reporter

    This is an affectionate portrait rather than a meaningful critical analysis. show more

    V.A. Musetto New York Post

    You don't have to have ever seen any of their movies to enjoy It Came From Kuchar, directed by one of George's former students, Jennifer M. Kroot. But you'll probably want to catch up with their work afterward. show more

    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    The movie makes the case that the best American filmmakers may be the uncelebrated ones who helplessly turn life into art simply as a means to get out of bed every day. show more

    Mike Scott New Orleans Times-Picayune

    The result is a documentary that is as interesting as it is irresistible. show more

    Bill Goodykoontz Arizona Republic

    Most of all, though, it's a welcome, offbeat look at a couple of originals, something that's in woefully short supply. show more

    David Fear Time Out New York

    These guys belong in the avant-odd pantheon. They also deserve a stronger, more penetrating tribute. show more

    Village Voice

    Jennifer M. Kroot's film opens up the careers that followed “Naked.” It's an accessible, professional job, with onscreen testimonials from Waters--whose work owes the most to them, and who has been their most faithful proselytizer--Guy Maddin, and Buck Henry. show more

    A.O. Scott The New York Times

    A valuable and intelligent introduction and tribute to their anarchic, uncompromising and absolutely peculiar genius. show more

    Ronnie Scheib Variety

    Gleefully piles on everything anyone could want in a docu on the fabulous Kuchar brothers, whose deliriously campy zero-budget mellers -- with titles like "Hold Me While I'm Naked" or "Sins of the Fleshapoids" -- enlivened many otherwise somber evenings of '60s underground cinema. show more
