Eric Kohn
Ornette isn't just a love letter to the liberty of jazz rhythms; it excels at expressing them. Full Review
John Anderson
Wall Street Journal
Years after its initial release, Ornette: Made in America, part of Milestone's continuing "Project Shirley," still feels fresh - its moves always surprising, yet always somehow perfect. Full Review
John DeFore
The Hollywood Reporter
Very much a work of its time, the documentary offers unique perspectives for fans of both the saxophonist and the pioneering filmmaker, but is unlikely to attract a broad audience beyond those camps. Full Review
Joseph Jon Lanthier
Slant Magazine
Shirley Clarke's portraiture eschews cohesive biography and often spirals off into lyrical dissonance. Full Review
Keith Uhlich
Time Out New York
Coleman's life and work are treated as a continuum, which Clarke pulls from at will. Full Review
