"Greg Whiteley's small, tender documentary portrait NEW YORK DOLL looks at life after rock 'n' roll as experienced by Arthur Kane, the original bassist for the legendary glam-punk band the New York Dolls."
Entertainment Weekly - 11/11/2005
"[Kane] remains haunted by demons of failure....[A] modestly touching journey..." -- Grade: B
Movieline's Hollywood Life - 03/01/2006
"As far as rock docs go, this is top-shelf stuff, all the way to the heartfelt reunion concert..."
Rolling Stone - 04/20/2006
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[A] sad and funny doc about Kane's unlikely journey to find peace of mind and one final moment of fame."
Mojo - 05/01/2006
4 stars out of 4 -- "With respect and sympathy, NEW YORK DOLL portrays a man who balances the incongruity of mourning his lost life in rock and thriving in his new life at church."
Uncut - 05/01/2006
4 stars out of 5 -- "Don't be surprised if you leave the cinema in tears. A beautiful film about a beautiful soul."

"[Whitley] offers an affectionate but unsentimental sketch of a slightly bewildered but spirited Kane."
Ultimate DVD - 09/01/2006
