Miller neither defends or apologizes: His remarkably candid footage (extending all the way to Wagner's deathbed and beyond) and interviews leave the man's sincerity (and his collectors') as open to scrutiny as his art.

A compelling bio-pic about one bad mother (shut your mouth!) who could have written a Bible for today's ghetto gangstas on how to be a player.

The film finds its footing whenever Johnny Coleman, professor of African-American Studies and Fine Arts at Oberlin College in Ohio, speaks openly about Wagner's troublesome images and the appeal those images have for whites.
