Thanks, Gottfried, but exploitation does not equal art.

Top Critic

It reduces Helnwein to simply being a determined, intransigent creative type.

Time Out
Top Critic

Suffers some dramatic slackness from the inevitable drawing board tedium of performance preparation.

Village Voice
Top Critic

A lack of focus and a meandering approach afflict this study of an artist at work.
