All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (7)

  • Frank Stiefel's fascinating portrait of the artist Mindy Alper has many layers, almost as many as the wire spirals of Alper's whimsical and haunting sculptures.

  • A moving film about the Los Angeles-based artist Mindy Alper.

    February 12, 2020 | Full Review…
  • A marvelously moving portrait of artist Mindy Alper. Her blunt openness about herself... is a challenge to us all to know ourselves as well as she seems to know herself, even when it's incredibly painful and difficult to do so.

    March 5, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • [Mindy Alper's] art, including the doodles she drew as a kid, is astonishingly sensitive, and Stiefel uses animation and optical effects to put viewers into Alper's head.

    February 23, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • Though it can be difficult to hear Mindy recount some her stories, Heaven is A Traffic Jam on the 405 is playful and beautiful treatise on the power of art as therapy and the uniquely human ability to transform pain into expression.

    February 20, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Mindy Alper is compelling, both for her eccentricities and her genius, as well as tragically for her story of abuse and terrible treatments and continued medical problems.
