Pauline Kael (1919-2001) was likely the most powerful, and personal, 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. Her career began as the Hollywood studio system ended, and finished just as the digital age was born. The latter golden age of movies of the 1960s and the 1970s are the focus of this film that pursues the question of what made Pauline Kael’s work so individual, so influential – and so damned good.
