Critic Reviews for Shirkers
The viewer, more than the filmmaker herself, may lament where Tan's career might have gone. But she seems intent on moving forward - and this project may well be the vehicle for it.
Tan presents her multifaceted life story-vibrant, unbelievable, and full of such incredible women-as a dazzling tapestry that's unlike many narrative or documentary films.
An exemplary work of counter-lives and alternative histories, intimate self-portraiture and cultural reconstruction, hard-won empathy and painful reconciliation.
Shirkers has the handmade delicacy of a scrapbook come to life, blending ample footage from the original production with candid modern-day interviews and photography.
