Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The problem is, watching how Serra's plates are constructed reinforces the notion that naming a thing can kill its impact."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"As the artist affects a symposium nearly as towering as his Promenade, always returning to process, the camera endlessly skims the narrow corridors of his planed steel walls, to increasingly fruitless effect."
‑ Michelle Orange, Village Voice
"For some, the geek talk might be enough, but the artist himself remains fixedly behind his walls."
‑ Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
"Mostly confirms how closely entwined modern-art practices are with intellectual wankitude."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
"Operating at the intersection of art and industrial engineering, Richard Serra is an informative if unanimated guide through Thinking on Your Feet."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
