Critic Reviews for A Poem Is a Naked Person

  • Unfortunately, most of the film is given over to musicians, baked and bickering endlessly in recording studios.

    July 10, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • A down and dirty mash-up of colourful sound and imagery.

    July 8, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It moves away from Russell to something else, somewhere else, to scenes and images that are beside the point. But that is the point.

    July 7, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Shot in the early 70s but shelved for 40 years, this portrait of R&B great Leon Russell (1974) immediately takes its place among the best rock docs.

    November 19, 2015 | Full Review…
  • This film was never released in theaters - it was obviously way too far out and ragged for its own good. But it works nicely as a warped time capsule harkening back to strange days.

    November 6, 2015 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • You begin to understand the eccentric characters and amazing weirdness of a (now lost) America that Blank was celebrating.
