      Judy Berman TIME Magazine It is Goldin’s courage and determination that make her an effective activist, and her empathetic eye that makes her a great artist. Mar 10, 2023 Full Review Paul Byrnes Sydney Morning Herald All the Beauty and the Bloodshed lives up to its promise. It’s a brilliant, compelling, confronting examination of Goldin’s work through the years. Rated: 4/5 Mar 2, 2023 Full Review Jenny Nulf Austin Chronicle A tremendous documentary, a striking piece of work that is so tender yet biting. Rated: 4/5 Feb 21, 2023 Full Review Rudie Obias Battleship Pretension There’s a lot of information and story in All the Beauty and the Bloodshed, but it never feels heavy, dull, or long-winded. Mar 13, 2024 Full Review Stephanie Bunbury Deadline Hollywood Daily Poitras never shoots Goldin in a way that lionizes her or gives her the stature of a warrior queen... She puts her camera squarely in front of Goldin and shows her at work. In the process, she makes a stupendous work of her own. Sep 26, 2023 Full Review Greg Carlson Vague Visages As profoundly and poignantly as any of the photographs the subject would go on to make. Jul 27, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

      Zach A It took a while for the two threads to connect but when they did, the film unveiled its true magic. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 09/02/23 Full Review Valerie J This is a compelling look at an artist who is a force of nature and rises up to slay the evil dragon that is the Sackler family. The opioid crisis has killed over 300,000 people and is on-going. Nan Goldin is the Goliath to this sociopathic family. Even after hearing dozens of impact statements as part of their recent hearing, the Sackler family has not accepted blame. There are still institutions that have not taken down the Sackler name and their collections, universities, expansions, etc. are funded by the deaths and suffering of thousands. Nan Goldin is fighting for all those dearly departed. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/24/23 Full Review Johnson F The title is a quote taken from the mental health evaluation of Nan Goldin's sister and this Oscar-nominated documentary deftly weaves the inspiration behind her 1985 slide show exhibition The Ballad of Sexual Dependency, her troubled personal lives and her battle against the Sackler dynasty responsible for the opioid epidemic in the United States. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 08/27/23 Full Review Joanna R An incredibly intimate portrait of Nan and a whole generation. Moving, deep. At the same time - the chronicle an uncompromising fight with the Saclers' family, as a logical consequence of her whole life, the effect of everything she had learned about herself and life. A beautiful lesson in responsibility and humanity. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 05/17/23 Full Review Hallam F Simply incredible. I have not been touched by a film, like this, for quite some time. A testament to the great works of Nan Goldin. If I could award more stars, I would. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/01/23 Full Review T M I'm surprised that is film only scores 57% - I'm not particularly a social activist, but the Sackler family certainly needs to be called to book on Oxycontin, which is a terrible drug that has killed hundreds of thousands, specifically because it was marketed as SAFE - which it very definitely is NOT. Maybe the intertwining themes are too complex for some audiences - perhaps this is a sign of the times. I was shocked, thrilled and entertained by this film as it rather gently (IMHO) hammered its message home. Great job! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 05/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews
