    March 5, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • For all the intellectual content, the most rewarding part of this documentary is the presence of Morrison herself - her infectious laugh, her famous carrot cake, her joyful love of parties.

  • Coming less than a year after her death, Timothy Greenfield-Sanders' film can't help being an elegy - but a celebration, too, of a woman acutely of her times and always a step ahead of them.

    March 4, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The tone is generally celebratory and, given Morrison's extraordinary impact on American letters, deservedly so.
