Critic Reviews for Wrestling with Angels: Playwright Tony Kushner

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (19) | Fresh (21) | Rotten (9)

  • This is an exceedingly friendly portrait, a disarming one, too. The filmmaker invites us to reconsider the author as someone warmer and less intimidating than his body of work. On that count, Wrestling With Angels succeeds.

    February 2, 2007 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The final portrait is unquestionably entertaining, very occasionally teasing and largely adoring. Because Kushner is a devoted political commentator, his thoughts on everything from America's role in the world to the nature of Zionism are on full display.

    January 12, 2007 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • [Director Freida Lee] Mock's approach to Kushner is so casual and friendly that it never steps outside of his own life for a glimpse of its context.

    December 30, 2006 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Wrestling with Angels is personal and intimate, insightful about Kushner as well as instructive about his collection of works.

    December 1, 2006 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Wrestling With Angels is a canny piece of filmmaking, sure to absorb both audiences familiar with Kushner's plays and those who know little or nothing about him.

    December 1, 2006 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • A sentimental valentine to a man who, underneath it all, simply wants to move people with his message.
