Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This repetitive documentary from Lisa Kirk Colburn banally strings Gottfried Helnwein's musings together with creative wrangles ..."
‑ Nicolas Rapold, New York Times
"Suffers some dramatic slackness from the inevitable drawing board tedium of performance preparation."
‑ Jonathan Kiefer, Village Voice
"Thanks, Gottfried, but exploitation does not equal art."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"A lack of focus and a meandering approach afflict this study of an artist at work."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"It reduces Helnwein to simply being a determined, intransigent creative type."
‑ Andrew Schenker, Time Out New York
"Much of the doc plays like a moderately well produced but tediously uncritical making-of feature that could easily have been included on the opera's DVD release."
‑ Abhimanyu Das, Slant Magazine
