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.

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.

As rewarding a 90 minutes as you can devote to a subject who did his best to remain eternally unknowable.
| Original Score: 3.5/5

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.

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.

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.
