Description

A profile of legendary movie critic Pauline Kael (1919-2001), filmmaker Rob Garver's What She Said examines Kael's career as a leading critic in the 20th century whose work inspired both awe and ire from the film industry. Ruthless and wise, Pauline wrote for the New Yorker between 1968 to 1991 and was widely known for her witty and lazer sharp reviews. Her voice arguably inspired the film critics that followed her, but she still remains a singular creative mind in the industry's history. As influential as she was controversial, Kael brought a refreshing take on the business of film reviewing--her writing was raw, personal and opinionated, each word an act of defiance against the hollywood machine. A true trailblazer, Graver's profile of Kael is an illuminating love letter to a creative voice that continues to inspire generations.
