Critic Reviews for Squatting the Palace
The film at times seems like a comic opera. It's no surprise that it all comes together in the end.
An edifying documentary about how one of today's hottest artists creates her memorable work.
Ms. Smith's vision is sketched on a napkin, and her approach to executing it is something like an act of surrender.
