Critic Reviews for Yarn

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4)

You have almost certainly never seen a better documentary about yarn than "Yarn." It isn't perfect - it's a little too airy and artsy in spots - but still, thread and string should be jealous.

The film offers fascinating insight into what yarn can do in the talented hands of those determined to elevate mere craft to high art.

This slender documentary's surprising disinterest in exploring related larger topics ultimately makes for a very superficial treatment of its subject.

Setting out to show the range of expression found in a field of craft it feels is too often dismissed as a trivial women's pastime, Una Lorenzen's Yarn showcases four artists doing things with crochet your spinster great-aunt probably never imagined.

Yarn is a charming if superficial look at the state of crafting around the world, as represented by four very different artists who work in knitting and crochet.

October 20, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A scrappy but endearing documentary about mostly female artists and a traditionally feminine art form.
