Pauline Kael (1919-2001) was likely the most powerful, and persona, movie critic of the 20th century. Writing for The New Yorker and publishing a dozen best-selling books, she ruthlessly pursued what made a movie or an actor’s performance work, or not, and why. She was both admired and despised amongst her readers. Her career began as the Hollywood studio system ended, and finished just as the digital age was born. The movies of the 1960s and ‘70s are the focus of this film that asks the question: What made Pauline Kael’s work so individual, so influential – and so damned good? 95 min. USA
