Critic Reviews for Kusama: Infinity

At the height of Kusama hysteria in Toronto, the film will make highly informative viewing both for those who get it - and for those who don't.

In its completist view and slavish devotion to a linear timeline of the artist's life, the film could easily devolve into a dutiful plod, were its subject not relentlessly interesting. But she is, so it doesn't, though it veers dangerously close.

Even after this comprehensive account of her life and career, she remains an enigma that can never be fully explored - which is itself a rather Kusama-ish idea.

Captures the struggle not only of one woman to make art, but also the issues that have beset almost all women working in the arts.

Lenz shows you Kusama's shows, and the mimicking exhibitions of her male contemporaries. It's a perfect film for the #metoo era: A glimpse into the life of a visionary born when even "progressive culture" ignored women's voices.

Sporadically interesting but mostly tedious...
