    WHAT SHE SAID; THE ART OF PAULINE KAEL (Rob Garver 2019)

    ROB GARVER: WHAT SHE SAID: THE ART OF PAULINE KAEL (2019)


    PAULINE KAEL

    And she said a hell of a lot

    Even if you have read a lot of Kael's movie criticism, there is a lot to learn about her. You realize she grew up when there were still silents. The menial jobs she had. That she had a child with the experimental filmmaker James Broughton. Paul Schrader said she was his second mother. What does that mean? That she was important. For a film reviewer who loves film reviews, she was unique. Those who ween't around when her reviews were being published can't imagine what it was like. Seeing this film will help them figure it out. She was smart, she was provocative (she could dare to be cruel), she was passionate, she had a huge memory of film. There's been nobody who's come close since.
