As with the 2008 film, a nice bonus of "Herb & Dorothy 50x50" is a chance to see a lot of the once-avant-garde art that so captivated the Vogels in their prime.

Sesuki ... widens her focus, offering insights into the state of contemporary art museums, nearly all of which are limited to the taste of their donors.

A superhero sequel worth seeing. . . [It's a] treat is to see the Vogels [as] active donors [and] how museums have experienced the impressive impact of their unique vision.

...an adoring account of how the famous art collectors generously donated the 4,000 pieces of art crammed into their one-bedroom apartment to the American public.

Dorothy Vogel is less the soft-spoken housewife from the first film than a businesswoman both shrewd and mousy, and her trajectory affords the film its closest semblance to a story.

As the saying goes, I may not know art, but I know what I like. I like this movie.
