The New Yorker film critic Pauline Kael battled to make her mark — fueled by brilliance, unshakable self-confidence, a complicated past, and a deep love of the arts. With over 35 new interviews and never-before seen archival material, What She Said is an unvarnished portrait of a pioneer who was both admired and resented for what she said about art in an era of great moviemaking.
Dir: Rob Garver / 2020 / US / 95 min
“An exquisitely crafted documentary about the woman who was arguably the greatest movie critic who ever lived. What She Said plays like a twirling kaleidoscope of Kael’s criticism and film history that’s fully in touch with the devil-may-care imperiousness of her personality. A pure, uncut hit of the tastiest cinephile candy imaginable.” – Owen Gleiberman, Variety
“Rob Garver’s engaging new documentary What She Said: The Art of Pauline Kael, a must for any film fan.” – G. Allen Johnson, San Francisco Chronicle
“No film buff or budding critic should miss this.” – Leonard Maltin
