Critic Reviews for The Incomparable Rose Hartman

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (2)

  • Mass commits the lazy doc sin of over-interviewing - dozens of talking heads fly by in just the first few minutes - which blurs the portrait in a soup of repeated comments as you try to assess who knew her and who's just pontificating.

    Jul 6, 2017 | Full Review…
  • The Incomparable Rose Hartman doesn't quite make the case for lengthily profiling its irascible and not particularly interesting subject.

    Jun 5, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Mass makes good use of Hartman's archival images, keeping things flowing with a steady stream of glittery nostalgia. But what's especially interesting is the striking ambivalence of her peers.

    Jun 2, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Pushy, judgmental, tart-tongued and self-obsessed, the photographer at the heart of Otis Mass's penetrating documentary, "The Incomparable Rose Hartman," is, like her snapshots, a piece of work.

    May 31, 2017 | Full Review…
  • A gorgeously shot, sharply edited portrait ...

    May 31, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Never less than entertaining, 'The Incomparable' has Hartman relentlessly promoting her latest book, being pushy at art exhibits, and haranguing her director, "You don't know how to do your job."
