McCarroll is as cocky and cantankerous as he is compelling, which leads to a glut of histrionic moments, including spectacular scuffles with his publicists and his staff.

McCarroll comes off as a likable and talented guy, amazingly calm as the Big Moment arrives and the guy making his models' shoes is nowhere to be found.

Even if you've never heard of Project Runway, the battle between art and wicked compromise never goes out of style.

The dynamics of fashioning low-end fashion are amusing but a little of McCarroll goes a long way.

For general audiences, it could use a bit of, ahem, tailoring - taking in here and there.

Though this is the rare documentary that admirably admits recording "reality" on film actually shapes how people behave under the camera's gaze, I think Eleven Minutes is going to appeal mostly to hard-core fashionistas.

Jay McCarroll is surprisingly endearing in a familiar fashion doc.

...a more real piece of work than one would expect.

A well-edited and moderately fascinating documentary lacking in truly illuminating and profound insights.

A decent behind-the-scenes look at the fashion world, a serviceable primer on what it takes to conceive, execute and present a collection and a diverting introduction to an entertaining personality.

A superbly crafted, bargain-budget documentary that profiles a fascinating underdog and skillfully explores the troubled territory between reality TV and reality.

The process for putting on a high-profile fashion show seems endlessly fascinating even if it's hard to find reason to care about Jay McCarroll as the film's central subject.

February 19, 2009 Full Review Source:

This delirious, delicious, deconstructing look at the recent real-world entry into fashion of reality-TV's first "Project Runway" winner Jay McCarroll should round up the usual suspects of gay, style-conscious viewers and many others eager for a good time
