      Sarah Fonseca Autostraddle While it would be easy to create a sterilized portrait of the accomplished intellectual, Kates refrains from doing so. Nov 3, 2018 Full Review David Wiegand San Francisco Chronicle If you take a less passive approach to the film and connect the multiple dots Kates and co-writer John Haptas have positioned through the 105-minute film, you'll begin to understand what made [Sontag] tick. Rated: 4/4 Dec 10, 2014 Full Review Robert Lloyd Los Angeles Times This... makes for a highly watchable film. Dec 10, 2014 Full Review Nathan Heller Vogue As Kates's documentary makes clear, few authors seized as fully the range of experience, intellectual and physical, that the writing life allowed, and used it to help with the crucial naming of their world. Sep 27, 2016 Full Review Anna Tatarska Movie Mezzanine Highlighting the personal sphere of the self-proclaimed "genius-schmuck" here seems not only justified, but important. Rated: B Dec 11, 2014 Full Review Nora Lee Mandel Film-Forward.com Insightful contrasts between . . .a fierce public persona of independence and the emotional compromises of a woman in the throes of passionate and erotic love. Rated: 8/10 Aug 4, 2014 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Worthless bio of a worthless gay intellectual. So boring and predictable and she was the darling of the left! Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Interesante documental sobre la famosa Sontag. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member This documentary should have focused more heavily on her ideas and some explanatory and/or critical assessments of her ideas, rather than on her personality, love life and intellectual status during her life. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Fascinating insight into the writer's personal life, and how that shaped her professional life.
