Critic Reviews powered by Metacritic ™

Slant Magazine
As entertaining as the documentary is, it never really measures up to the fascination and sheer force of personality of its subject. Full Review
A.O. Scott
The New York Times
Like many other recent documentaries about artists, it is more celebratory than analytical, a kind of slick, extended promotional video for its subject. Full Review
Joe Neumaier
New York Daily News

John DeFore
The Hollywood Reporter
Matthew Akers' film is a personally revealing look at an artist most famous for maintaining stone-faced silence for three months. Full Review
Joshua Rothkopf
Time Out New York
Rare is the profile that captures so much oddness with so little judgment. You owe yourself a chance to be challenged. Full Review
