ABOUT THE FILM

Trailblazing New Yorker film critic Pauline Kael (1919–2001) had an immeasurable influence on cinema history. Her witty, shoot-from-the-hip style and unapologetic opinions were required reading in the 1970s and ‘80s. Roger Ebert called her “the most powerful, loved, and hated film critic of her time.” In a field that has historically embraced few women, Kael was deeply knowledgeable, unabashedly emotional…and utterly ruthless. Featuring Sarah Jessica Parker, Quentin Tarantino, Paul Schrader, Francis Ford Coppola, Camille Paglia and a cornucopia of memorable film clips, this entertaining retrospective won the Golden Strands Award for Outstanding Documentary at Wichita’s Tallgrass International Film Festival.
