The work of Japanese contemporary artist Yayoi Kusama is frequently mind-blowing and this new film does a nice job of telling her story.

The art is richly inventive and the artist, though certainly a profoundly eccentric figure, comes across as both courageous and determined.

It's an impressive compilation of information, but it covers so much in a short amount of time that it ultimately feels a little superficial.

This is exactly what Kusama herself would wish: preserving her mystery isn't the worst way of doing her justice.

Heather Lenz's documentary, which runs through the subject's eventful life at a chronological clip, is respectful of Kusama, never imposing too closely on what was a difficult dedication to her obsessive artistic practice.

The film serves as an excellent cautionary tale for those who seek to curate culture, recognizing that no era should be solely represented by a bunch of white men.

It's a gripping story, one that you are already aware will have a redemptive arc, but not without extreme tragedy along the way.

As it should be with a film like this, the most fascinating aspect is the examination of Kusama's process, its evolution, and the psychology that drives it.

There is great beauty in her work and Lenz's camera does it great justice.

With her magenta wig and absent, dissociated manner, [Kusama] is a slightly humourless but compelling subject.

The installation artist, sculptor and world-famous painter of dots, Yayoi Kusama, is poorly served by this achingly pedestrian biographical film.

Using interviews, archive photographs and footage, and the artist's own testimony, Lenz gives a detailed account of Kusama's time in New York.

Infinity is an essential watch in order to understand why Yayoi Kusama's art matters, and how the person behind the dots is inspirational beyond the finite reach of our own individual universes.

"Kusama: Infinity" makes me believe that as Dostoevsky once wrote, "Beauty will save the world."

[A] visually elegant, emotionally engaging documentary...that celebrates [Kusama] as a person as well as an artist.
