  • Critic Reviews
    "A personally revealing look at an artist most famous for maintaining stone-faced silence for three months, MARINA ABRAMOVIC: THE ARTIST IS PRESENT makes performance art accessible..."
    Hollywood Reporter

    "[E]ven though filmed behind the scenes, with her guard down, the artist is still revealed at the top of her game, a true survivor who's finally received the recognition she knows she deserves."
    Film Comment

    "[R]iveting....[A] portrait of an artist whose life and work intertwine in ways even more compelling than might be imagined."
    Los Angeles Times

    "[A]n elegantly observed, sleekly packaged look at an artist whose career-long balance of enigma and self-exposure culminated in a 2010 retrospective at New York Citys Museum of Modern Art."

    "[I]t's about something bigger than one artist. It taps into the ways that the radical underground art world go seduced by the bourgeois passion for fame." -- Grade: A-
    Entertainment Weekly

    4 stars out of 5 -- "[C]onsistently informative in charting Abramovic's career, and genuinely engaging thanks to his subject's witty, unpretentious presence."
    Total Film

    "[A] solid and thoughtful introduction to Abramovic's work....Insight into Abramovic's creative process is also fortunately forthcoming."
