Critic Reviews for !Women Art Revolution

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (12)

Contrasting with the ferment of the times, the film is orderly and rather subdued, but it's an excellent introduction to a movement that produced artists as diverse as Yoko Ono, Cindy Sherman, and Miranda July.

By the end of the film, you'll be searching out the work of Judy Chicago, Sheila de Bretteville, Faith Ringgold, Miranda July and the Guerrilla Girls, among many others.

It's both enlightening and a bit messy, but then history is always messy.

An astute mix of interviews with artists, critics and experts on the movement.

It's affecting, and the tone, which is polemical, is also rueful and realistic.

We weren't all there watching the struggle take place, and a more clearly stated thesis or a simple delineation of cause and effect could have gone a long way.

Audience Reviews for !Women Art Revolution

A fabulous introduction to a number of female artists that I had never been exposed to. It was a tremendous educational opportunity as well as a great film. I am glad that I had the opportunity to learn.

This enlightening documentary about the feminist art movement has plenty of brains and heart, I only wish it had a little more bite.

A fairly standard doc about an important movement. The footage is informative and insightful, it's just hard to fit so much into one 83 minute film. In the end, !W.A.R. feels more like a trailer enticing you to discover the artists presented within it, among the countless others, for yourself.
