Critic Reviews for Regarding Susan Sontag

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (1)

  • While it would be easy to create a sterilized portrait of the accomplished intellectual, Kates refrains from doing so.

    November 3, 2018 | Full Review…
  • If you take a less passive approach to the film and connect the multiple dots Kates and co-writer John Haptas have positioned through the 105-minute film, you'll begin to understand what made [Sontag] tick.

    December 10, 2014 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • This... makes for a highly watchable film.

    December 10, 2014 | Full Review…
  • You're left with the feeling that Ms. Kates was drawn to Ms. Sontag as a personality and a sexual and political symbol but didn't really take seriously the work she devoted her life to.

    December 8, 2014 | Full Review…
  • As Kates's documentary makes clear, few authors seized as fully the range of experience, intellectual and physical, that the writing life allowed, and used it to help with the crucial naming of their world.

    September 27, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Highlighting the personal sphere of the self-proclaimed "genius-schmuck" here seems not only justified, but important.
