Critic Reviews for Behind the White Glasses

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (3)

  • Dismayingly shallow, this 2015 documentary about Italian writer-director Lina Wertmüller fails to address what makes her work so controversial-or, for that matter, virtually anything beyond why her friends and collaborators like her.

    May 4, 2017 | Full Review…
  • There was a time when audiences lined up around city blocks to see the movies of Lina Wertmüller. "Behind the White Glasses" lets you revisit a bit of that passion, without quite nailing what it was.

    April 20, 2017 | Full Review…
  • The movie treats Ms. Wertmüller's poorly received post-1970s career with kid gloves.

    April 20, 2017 | Full Review…
  • This affectionate portrait includes extensive interviews with Wertmuller, who remains vital in her late 80s, as well as performance footage of her singing her original compositions.

    March 1, 2016 | Full Review…
  • There's plenty of information about the making of [Lina Wertmuller's] movies, including interviews with her stars Giancarlo Giannini and Mariangela Melato.

    January 30, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Behind the White Glasses is sketchy as biography but still a fun and jumpy ode to brazenly unbound and cross-disciplinary artistry.
