A coherent statement of mystery at the beginning and a resolution of that mystery at the end don't make up for the general repetition and tedium in between.

A not-always-engaging look at the strange life of Pop artist Ray Johnson.
Amber Wilkinson
Eye for Film
August 20, 2002
Although an interesting insight into the culture, Walter presents no lasting image of the man.

Simply put, Ray Johnson was neither good nor original. All that he did in his 'art' was done before and better by others. That the same can be said of his documentarian's film may be a small synchronicity, but that's all it is. What it is not is art.

One of the pleasures in Walter's documentary ... is the parade of veteran painters, confounded dealers, and miscellaneous bohos who expound upon the subject's mysterious personality without ever explaining him.

Worth seeing, especially for anyone interested in American art history.

In the end, you may not know Ray Johnson any better than his friends - you know stories, but not what motivated him to do what he did... Still, an interesting portrait.

How do you make a movie about the most famous unknown artist in the world?
Tim Merrill
Film Threat
December 8, 2002
This enthralling documentary ... is at once playful and haunting, an in-depth portrait of an iconoclastic artist who was fundamentally unknowable even to his closest friends.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5

The film itself becomes not so much a portrait of Ray Johnson as a collage. Maybe that's exactly as it should be.

Cumulatively [Johnson's] collages, letters and performances -- and his legend -- compose a self-portrait of striking wryness and complexity.
