To say Ai Weiwei is an interesting character is an understatement. He is an unconventional social activist and a thorn in the side of the authoritarian Chinese Communist Party.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Klayman never demonizes the authoritarian Chinese government, as her purpose seems to be to show how difficult it is to be a rebel in such a closed society as China.

Even if you don't like documentaries as a rule, I'm betting you'll like Ai Weiwei himself so much that you'll be glad you took the time to get to know him through this film.

Klayman deserves a lot of credit for being in the right place at the right time with the right person. Ai is a treat to follow around, and his courage is clearly more than a pose.

A powerful film that teaches us as much about ourselves as it does it's subject, "Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry," is a sure bet to be nominated for an Oscar come January 2013.

His willingness to speak out despite severe consequences is inspiring, and his recent silence speaks almost as loudly as his work in calling attention to China's repressive tactics.
