Kusama: Infinity Reviews

December 21, 2018
This is exactly what Kusama herself would wish: preserving her mystery isn't the worst way of doing her justice.

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

A respectful and valuable tribute.

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

"Kusama: Infinity" is a fascinating guide to its subject and her work, but the emotional wall Kusama lives behind remains unbroken. She is a loner and a mystery.

There's something oddly comforting about such a person serving as the subject for a documentary this respectful, and traditional.

Part talent, part hustle, part pathological insistence on her own way of dealing with the world, it's an optimistic narrative with plenty of colorful guest stars, and should have a slightly broader appeal than the usual art-world portrait.

"Kusama - Infinity," while conventionally structured, provides ample, illuminating access to an artist's way of thinking and working.

A genuinely felt portrait of the artist as a dedicated survivor, ever in service to her vision of the world and fighting for her place in it.

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.
