What She Said: The Art of Pauline Kael screening (2020-Jan-14 @ 6:30 p.m.)
Tuesday, January 14 @ 18:30–20:30
The Little will screen What She Said: The Art of Pauline Kael (Rob Garver, U.S. 2018, 98 min.) followed by a videoconference Q&A with director Rob Garver as part of the One Take Documentary Series.
"The most powerful, loved, and hated film critic of her time." — Roger Ebert on Pauline Kael (1919-2001).
In a field that has historically embraced few women film critics, Kael was charismatic, controversial, witty, and discerning. Her decades-long berth at The New Yorker energized her fans ("Paulettes") and infuriated her detractors on a weekly basis. Her turbo-charged prose famously championed the New Hollywood Cinema of the late 1960s and '70s (Bonnie And Clyde, Nashville, Carrie, Taxi Driver) and the work of major European directors (François Truffaut, Bernardo Bertolucci), while mercilessly panning some of the biggest studio hits (The Sound Of Music, Midnight Cowboy, Dirty Harry).
