“Laura Poitras’s documentary portrait of the photographer Nan Goldin shares its subject’s passion, candor, and scope of action.”
—Richard Brody, The New Yorker
“Poitras hasn’t embraced the usual journalistic norms in directing this documentary. She has a point of view, she has passion, she has politics, and there never was any danger of her both-siding this raw, emotionally ferocious story, one that she continues to remake with her brilliance and with all the bruises that never heal.”
—Manohla Dargis, New York Times
