What She Said: The Art of Pauline Kael
Part of the Documentaries Strand
This beautifully constructed and engaging documentary explores the life and career of the inimitable Pauline Kael, New Yorker film critic from 1967 to 1991, with reflections on the importance and cultural significance of film criticism, feminism, her resistance to academicising, her influence on the rise of the American New Wave, and the impact of her often fierce reviews. Featuring reminiscences from Quentin Tarantino, John Boorman, David O. Russell and David Lean, among many others, interspersed with clips from some of the many films she reviewed, this is a fascinating tribute to a titan of film criticism. 
What She Said: The Art of Pauline Kael is nominated for the 2019 Award for Best Documentary Feature Film.
