Arthur Kane is a fascinating subject in what ultimately proves to be a touching, bittersweet documentary.

The Doll in the title of the fine, touching documentary New York Doll is far from a supermodel.
New York Doll is still a revelation, and a fine companion piece to End of the Century, the edgier and uglier history of another post-Dolls band, The Ramones.
The late Johnny Thunders didn't write You Can't Put Your Arms Around a Memory until after the Dolls had broken up, but this lovely little heartbreaker of a movie takes the sentiment as its own.
[A] respectful and subtle look at the difference faith can make in one's life.
Becomes a lovely portrait of a man coming back to himself, without forgetting what else he's become.
As the credits roll, New York Doll transforms from a puff piece about an aging rock star into a moving rumination on a man's final grasp for redemption.
A tribute to and stroking of its subject ... And by canonizing Kane, displaying this hulking angel with such innocence, the film is soulless.
Excels at telling the extraordinary story of a bizarrely ordinary man.
Touching and funny, with an unforgettable ending that could not have been better if it were fiction. One of the best films of the year.
The details, the personalities and the final twist grab you until you're left truly shaken and inspired.
In the end, it is hard to not feel that God does work in mysterious ways, if the life of Arthur 'Killer' Kane is any example.
A stirring film that [turns] Arthur Kane's largely heartbreaking rock and roll life into a small monument to the power of friendship and the wonders of the spirit.
Fantastic doc on Arthur 'Killer' Kane, the bassist for the New York Dolls. If you like documentaries and/or the Dolls, this is one for you.
