Critic Reviews for Jason And Shirley

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

  • An anguished view of the power relations, societal conflicts, and cruel sacrifices from which Clarke's film arose.

  • Exposed here is the longstanding and somewhat vampiric process of white artists extracting for their work minority perspectives and experiences.

  • Mercifully, it's never too pedantic (it skirts close a few times) and is often quite funny - as when she gets in digs at Andy Warhol. But the film never really gets at the hostilities lobbed at Jason.

  • As long as you accept that this film is fiction and that its view of Shirley Clarke and Carl Lee is hateful, it is still worth seeing for its performances and bold if repellent POV.

  • Stephen Winter's film doesn't earn the gall it evinces by pissing on Shirley Clarke's masterpiece.
