From 1968 to 1991, Pauline Kael ruled as a film oracle from the pages of The New Yorker. Her voice was passionate and personal, skewering flabby sentimentality or dishonesty while finding remarkable elements in mediocre films and championing works now seen as classics. A woman of disciples and enemies, brilliant reviews and positions that may confuse or anger us. But always worth reading, reacting to, thinking about, as we hear again in this documentary of a woman who challenged how we look at film.
