It was amazing to learn more about Kusama and see how she created her art.
January 24, 2019
even if you do not like art, [Kusama's] energy, imagination and penchant for bright colors (flowers are an early influence), you should appreciate the effort by docmaker Heather Lenz.

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.
December 19, 2018
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.

...a great introduction to a world famous artist who is likely still a stranger to some.

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.

A film about the struggles undertaken by a woman making it in a man's world.

A respectful and valuable tribute.
October 5, 2018
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.
