Performers, Cast and Crew:
New York Times - 06/05/2009
"[A] modest, touching documentary....Interviews with the artists whom they collected testify to their sharp eye and good spirits, while the Vogels themselves, sitting in their same old apartment, overflowing as ever, make for charming company."
Hollywood Reporter - 06/04/2009
"No doubt 'humble' and 'contemporary art scene' rarely inhabit the same sentence, but debuting filmmaker Megumi Sasaki's wonderful portrait of Herb and Dorothy Vogel summons these words."
Box Office - 06/05/2009
3 stars out of 5 -- "HERB AND DOROTHY certainly proves there's more than one way to be an art collector."
Los Angeles Times - 07/14/2009
"The Vogels' story is a very specific one, at once more unexpected and more moving than it might seem at first."
Wall Street Journal - 07/10/2009
"HERB AND DOROTHY, a documentary by Megumi Sasaki, grows on you just as its subjects do....[T]he film leaves no doubt that the Vogels have done noble work in a spirit of almost pure selflessness, the only qualification being that they've loved the art they bought."
Though they never had much money, a New York City librarian and a postal worker managed to build up one of the most impressive collections in contemporary art. This documentary offers a fascinating portrait of the couple, Herbert and Dorothy Vogel, and their abiding friendships with such artists as Chuck Close, Sol LeWitt, and Robert Mangold.
