Kusama: Infinity Reviews
Congratulations to as equally dedicated director Heather Lenz on brinnging this film to life for us to enjoy.
What an amazing vision drives this artist, and this film climbs right inside that marvelous mind.
We already loved Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, with her lack of filter and whimsical passion for polka-dots. But according to Kusama - Infinity, there's way more to her than we knew. We threw tantrums over all of the men who not only took her brilliant ideas but stole credit for them. (We're looking at you, Warhol.) We cheered for her as she married gay couples in the streets of New York 40 years before it was legal. We laughed, cried, and worshiped this woman. She's had so much suffering and has so much to offer. At long last, she's getting the credit she deserves.
The pacing and narrative and choice of visual images from Kusama's incredibly prolific works - create an intimacy and feeling of having visited a great installation at an art museum.. now available forever - --aptly named-Kusama-Infinity.
