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

  • [This] documentary portrait of Honig at the end of his life ... puts the poet's state of constant "now" in the context of the brilliant but sometimes cruel man he used to be.

  • Using a powerful focal point to manifest the movie's central concerns, Berliner makes his interest in the topic relevant to everyone.

    September 23, 2013 | Rating: A | Full Review…
  • Heartbreaking, haunting and unexpectedly heartening, "First Cousin Once Removed" is an uncommonly moving documentary portrait of a mind in disarray.

    September 20, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It's the latest of Mr. Berliner's dogged investigations into identity and family, and his strongest work yet, elevated by the presence of another artist in Mr. Honig, playfully insightful and eloquent even as his powers wane.

    September 15, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A haunting, masterfully made, and achingly melancholy portrait of the end of life.
