Critic Reviews for Eleven Minutes

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (15)

  • McCarroll is as cocky and cantankerous as he is compelling, which leads to a glut of histrionic moments, including spectacular scuffles with his publicists and his staff.

  • McCarroll comes off as a likable and talented guy, amazingly calm as the Big Moment arrives and the guy making his models' shoes is nowhere to be found.

  • Even if you've never heard of Project Runway, the battle between art and wicked compromise never goes out of style.

  • The dynamics of fashioning low-end fashion are amusing but a little of McCarroll goes a long way.

  • For general audiences, it could use a bit of, ahem, tailoring - taking in here and there.

  • Though this is the rare documentary that admirably admits recording "reality" on film actually shapes how people behave under the camera's gaze, I think Eleven Minutes is going to appeal mostly to hard-core fashionistas.
