Matthew Barney: No Restraint (2006)

" Barney's art presents a cross between the creepiness of David Cronenberg and David Lynch and the grandiosity and business sense of George Lucas. Chernick's film unquestioningly admires it." ‐ Chicago Tribune

In the Realms of the Unreal (2005)

"The best way for a film to acknowledge the specialness of painting is to get out of its way and present it unaltered, whereas Yu uses it as raw material to be moved around, sometimes so crudely as to resemble the credits for Monty Python's Flying Circus." ‐ Chicago Tribune

"I know of no documentary on a contemporary artist that conveys so much about the artist's work so lyrically and directly." ‐ Chicago Tribune
