More interesting is Chernick's concise survey of Barney's intriguing early work, including weird Vaseline-covered sculptures and footage of him trying to draw while under physical restraints such as a harness, etc.
If Chernick set out to portray the couple's movie project as a bit frivolous and self-absorbed, she succeeded. But I doubt that was the intention.
[Director] Chernick's stylish yet superficial report looks more like an orientation video for museum visitors.
Barney's art presents a cross between the creepiness of David Cronenberg and David Lynch and the grandiosity and business sense of George Lucas. Chernick's film unquestioningly admires it.
As blandly lucid as Barney is wildly and perplexingly imaginative.
Alison Chernick's documentary attempts to provide some much-needed insight, combining a biographical and artistic portrait of the provocateur.
How it is that such a polarizing artist coule be the subject of such a tepid documentary is nearly as much of a mystery as the often convoluted allegory of Barney's art.
An essential companion piece for anyone who feels like they didn't get
... Chernick's film ends up being far more accessible than Barney's.
Better than the actual film it's the featurette for.
An absorbing documentary that seeks to explain this most enigmatic of modern artists.
Chernick may not answer every question about this beguiling and enigmatic film, but you wouldn't want it to: Mystery is an essential part of the Barney experience.
