All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

The movie does not advertise its alliances, and Sontag's position is pretty thoroughly hidden in the folds of her imagery.

...a reminder of a time when a noted writer and intellectual was willing to take the risk of working in a medium in which she had no training and minimal experience...

...Sontag was enough of an artist to know that she was present in a crucible-moment, and that if she just pointed her camera in the right direction, history would do the rest.
