When Pauline Kael joined The New Yorker in 1968 her writing arguably became more influential than any producer or studio in encouraging the maverick filmmakers who defined the next decade of American cinema. Her reviews were combative and feisty, which meant that while she was adored by readers, she was often held in contempt by directors and publicists when she slated their films. Rob Garver’s captivating documentary brings Kael’s brilliant writing to life and celebrates perhaps the one true titan of film criticism with rare archive, clips from the films she wrote about and interviews with high profile fans and detractors.
