Rating: 2.5/4 -- If Kael were still alive, she might well have wanted "What She Said" to cock a more critical eye toward her. She says right in the doc that it's dangerous for a critic to be too popular. Full Review

Rating: B+ -- Pauline Kael would probably have hated the Pauline Kael documentary, is what I'm saying. Hell, she almost certainly would have, and it would have been great. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- Thankfully, "What She Said" is balanced on the subject of Kael's clout in the film and magazine industries, which could be as bruising as it was influential. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/5 -- "What She Said" is a good movie, an engaging look at probably the most influential film critic of all time. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- While Garver's documentary isn't worthy of its subject's fascinating artistic legacy, I anxiously await the one that is. Full Review

If it convinces one young moviegoer to pick up one of her books- or, better yet, interrogate their own relationship with film and film criticism- it will have done its job. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

The New Yorker film critic Pauline Kael battled to make her mark -- fueled by brilliance, unshakable self-confidence, a complicated past, and a deep love of the arts. With over 40 new interviews and never-before seen archival material, What She Said is an unvarnished portrait of a pioneer who was both admired and resented for what she said about art in an era of great moviemaking.
