Flirting with the cliche, its constants circulate through a story animated by the detective [director Margarethe] Von Trotta and by original revelations about his ego, his cinephilia, his legacy. [Full review in Spanish]

Von Trotta builds a film that's a bit like a motorbike with sidecar; she's off an an adventure, and we're invited to hop in and sit shotgun for it all.

Margarethe von Trotta's new documentary is a handsome, if occasionally thin, look at the work and life of one of cinema's great artists.

Most intriguing is a long chat with French writer-director Mia Hansen-Løve...
November 9, 2018
That von Trotta has made her own uniquely inviting tour of his triumphs, anguishes, and longstanding themes - in essence a roomy portrait of the artist as an engaged, fallible searcher - is its own gift of sorts, from one acolyte of cinema to another.

A chatty and enjoyable but decidedly nondefinitive look at one of the cinema's most acclaimed, influential auteurs.

Little here will surprise cineastes but much of it will charm them.
