Movie Info

Ray Johnson was an artist who followed a creative path so individual than even his closest friends were often hard put to explain just what he was up to. Once described as "the most famous unknown artist in America," Johnson was a legend partly for his work (in which he incorporated pop art images, collage, rubber stamps, and any number of other elements in a unique and groundbreaking manner), partly for his striking sense of humor (he once accepted an offer of 1,500 dollars for a piece after

A coherent statement of mystery at the beginning and a resolution of that mystery at the end don't make up for the general repetition and tedium in between.

Worth seeing, especially for anyone interested in American art history.

Serves as worthy tribute to a true original, an 'artist's artist' for whom life itself was a singular mode of expression.

Cumulatively [Johnson's] collages, letters and performances -- and his legend -- compose a self-portrait of striking wryness and complexity.

The film itself becomes not so much a portrait of Ray Johnson as a collage. Maybe that's exactly as it should be.

Simply put, Ray Johnson was neither good nor original. All that he did in his 'art' was done before and better by others. That the same can be said of his documentarian's film may be a small synchronicity, but that's all it is. What it is not is art.

As rewarding a 90 minutes as you can devote to a subject who did his best to remain eternally unknowable.

In the end, you may not know Ray Johnson any better than his friends - you know stories, but not what motivated him to do what he did... Still, an interesting portrait.

If you have any interest in Raymond Johnson and his pop art, maybe you, too, will learn How to Draw a Bunny.

This is one of the most compelling character studies to hit the screen in a long time.

This enthralling documentary ... is at once playful and haunting, an in-depth portrait of an iconoclastic artist who was fundamentally unknowable even to his closest friends.
