About:
A portrait of controversial and influential film critic Pauline Kael.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
Pauline Kael is among the most famous and divisive film critics of all time. Her praise helped uplift the careers of Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, and others, while her putdowns left lasting wounds. She was a pioneering woman in a male chauvinistic world. This nuanced portrait captures her complexity while revisiting late-twentieth-century cinema through her lens, using ample film clips, never-before-seen archival, wide-ranging interviews, and her writings voiced by Sarah Jessica Parker.
