This repetitive documentary from Lisa Kirk Colburn banally strings Gottfried Helnwein's musings together with creative wrangles ...

Thanks, Gottfried, but exploitation does not equal art.

New York Post
Top Critic

It reduces Helnwein to simply being a determined, intransigent creative type.

Time Out
Top Critic

Suffers some dramatic slackness from the inevitable drawing board tedium of performance preparation.

Village Voice
Top Critic

A lack of focus and a meandering approach afflict this study of an artist at work.

Film Journal International

Much of the doc plays like a moderately well produced but tediously uncritical making-of feature that could easily have been included on the opera's DVD release.
