Critic Reviews for What She Said: The Art of Pauline Kael

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (13) | Rotten (1)

  • This is a richly compelling work, one that makes you yearn to watch more films and to understand why we need them.

    Feb 15, 2019 | Full Review…
  • An exquisitely crafted documentary about the woman who was arguably the greatest movie critic who ever lived...

    Feb 11, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Garver's film blossoms into something more comprehensive than complimentary, a film that doesn't balk at the trickier aspects of Kael's career, even as it never fully engages with the tensions that informed her.

  • A star critic gets the spotlight in an absorbing doc.

    Sep 3, 2018 | Full Review…
  • It's hard to watch a film in which the subject is a film critic, without wondering what they would have made of the film itself, and this gives the film a pleasurable little frisson to take away and ponder.

    Jul 12, 2019 | Rating: 3 | Full Review…
  • Kael freed up film criticism with her slangy, evocative style and her willingness to pour her own life into her reviews; this film drains that life out of her work with its dull adherence to talking-head interviews and Wikipedia-style factoids.
