2.5/4 93% Kusama: Infinity (2018) In its completist view and slavish devotion to a linear timeline of the artist's life, the film could easily devolve into a dutiful plod, were its subject not relentlessly interesting. But she is, so it doesn't, though it veers dangerously close. - Toronto Star EDIT

3/4 91% Human Flow (2017) Ai Weiwei has made something beautiful: Human Flow is neither indulgent nor pedantic, but clear-eyed in its view of the enormity of the crisis too vast for most of us to comprehend. - Toronto Star EDIT

3/4 93% Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case (2014) "If I don't share my voice," he says, "then I am dead already." It sounds almost like a dare. - Toronto Star EDIT

3.5/4 98% Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry (2012) Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry accomplishes what the best works of this sort do: Take a great, compelling, widely known story and make it deeper, fuller and better. - Toronto Star EDIT

4/4 96% Marina Abramovic: The Artist Is Present (2012) So magnetic is she that if Abramovic had chosen to be a baker, or a janitor, you could still make a film about her and it would be only slightly less bombastic, and no less stirring. - Toronto Star EDIT

1.5/4 No Score Yet West Wind: The Vision Of Tom Thomson (2011) The West Wind is the same old reverential Thomson myth we've heard hundreds of times: About Thomson's self-taught intuitive genius, his love of nature, his outdoorsy, loner compulsions. - Toronto Star EDIT

1.5/4 89% Gerhard Richter Painting (2012) Nearly two hours of drab, dull-as-dishwater footage of the politely taciturn painter quietly going about his business... - Toronto Star EDIT

3.5/4 90% Save the Green Planet (2004) Demented yet somehow humane, Save The Green Planet is a visually ingenious hybrid melding horror, black comedy, revenge thriller and science fiction into an unpredictable, cohesive whole. - Toronto Star EDIT
