a story of the unique, the odd, and the heartbreaking ... and always interesting

Critic Reviews powered by Metacritic ™

Hogancamp is a complex character, and Marwencol introduces the man in layers, creating an incomplete yet sympathetic portrait specialty audiences and hipsters can agree on. Full Review

Time Out New York
When it comes to capturing the man behind the phenomenon, however, the film never progresses beyond a superficial, weird-yet-wonderful portraiture. Full Review
Jeannette Catsoulis
The New York Times
Four years in the making, Marwencol emerges as a number of things: an absorbing portrait of an outsider artist; a fascinating journey from near-death to active life; a meditation on the brain's ability to forge new pathways when old ones have been destroyed. Full Review
