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.
As engaging and unpretentious as its subjects, the Manhattan couple who became unlikely benefactors of Washington, D.C.'s National Gallery of Art.
The film's hymn of praise quickly grows cloying, thanks partly to a relentless musical soundtrack.
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.
Interesting ideas can be gleaned, higgledy-piggledy, but without much cooperation from the director.
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.
Defined more by its inessential nature than any of the updates it provides.
...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.
