Slant Magazine

An involving documentary that doesn't offer a convincing argument against solitary confinement for those who may not fully realize what's objectionable about it.

This moving but sketchy documentary fails to explore its provocative issues in fully satisfying fashion.

It's an absorbing, prickly tale, which Bhalla doesn't tell as coherently as he could have-oddly fitting, considering this is a story about frustrated ambitions and unfulfilled potential.

Bhalla builds a damning picture of what's happening to Wallace. But he avoids pure rant ...

A very poignant doc that celebrates the genuine virtues of compassion, friendship.

A fascinating biopic as much about a possible miscarriage of justice as about a case of arrested development who looks like a little girl playing house with an imaginary mate.

Wallace is heard but not seen in the film, a decision by Toronto director Angad Singh Bhalla that serves art more than it does the story.

A portrait of an invisible man, Herman's House is a raised voice in the constitutional debate over solitary confinement.

Although this documentary has a powerful political subtext, it is best described as a conceptual art piece about confinement, attached to a dual biography of the artist and the prisoner.

What drives the film is artist Jackie Sumell's relationship with [Angola 3 member Herman] Wallace.

Herman's House is conventionally produced, but it does right by its two uncommon subjects.

Film Journal International

Herman's House shows off the talents of several young principal crew members, and that of the director who makes his documentary feature debut, but it lacks the gravitas of human-rights filmmaking.

The contrasting demeanors of its two main characters give Herman's House its spark, but the movie has some pungent moments without them.

Reminiscent in some ways of the Damien Nichols story but more about a father-daughter relationship. It also shows what a gifted conceptual artist can do, making the Whitney Biennial look like a bit of a joke.
