The movie gives us an eyeful, but the unexamined irony is that the nice old couple can't sell the rest of us on why it's good.

Sasaki balances her subjects' yarns with insights into the cultural moment that shaped them and vice-versa, in particular the shift from abstract expressionism to the sparer gestures of minimalist and conceptual art.

If Ripley's Believe It or Not! were still around, Herb and Dorothy Vogel would surely be in it for amassing a world-class art collection on the most ordinary of working-class salaries.

It's impossible to leave this movie believing that the Vogels are weirdos or naifs. A wealth of artists and curators testify to their strong eye, unwavering enthusiasm, and clear judgment.

You can't hate the film anymore than you can hate Herb and Dorothy. But this is lazy work.

This easygoing movie fully captures the couple's charm and offers a unique look at the '60s and '70s New York art scene.

Megumi Sasaki's convivial Herb and Dorothy is both a double-portrait of the diminutive couple, now in their 90s and 80s, and a sketch of the art, and artists, collected by these vest-pocket Rockefellers.

Briskly and engagingly cinematic. ... [Their compulsive collecting seems] at once crazy, smart, generous and enormously endearing.

As they share their views of modern art, director Megumi Sasaki's film feels like a cozy visit with neighbors whose insights are priceless.

The Vogels [Herb and Dorothy], sitting in their same old apartment, overflowing as ever, make for charming company.

Herb & Dorothy describes and amply illustrates the extraordinary saga of the Vogels, who double-handedly built one of the most important collections of Minimalist and Conceptual Art in history with their modest salaries.
