Critic Reviews for Uncle Howard

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (5)

A testament to lives cut short and stories half-told.

December 13, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

While the movie has scintillating glimpses of such '80s New York luminaries as Madonna, Patti Smith and Laurie Anderson, it's less a nostalgic evocation than a dual portrait of two intertwined artists, one gone too soon, the other just hitting his stride.

November 17, 2016 | Full Review…

A bit disjointed but also vibrant and loving, much like its subject.

November 17, 2016 | Full Review…

A tribute made all the more affecting by its quiet, contemplative approach.

January 29, 2016 | Full Review…

This is no starry-eyed, heart-on-sleeve flashback but a low-key, respectful one, no less appealing for its relative reserve.

... a sincere tribute to all those who deserve to be remembered even if history is determined to forget them. [Full review in Spanish]
