  • Critic Reviews
    4 stars out of 5 -- "His period of public silence is a beautifully tense passage -- a patch of absence that points to the likelihood our fear of censorship isn't its ability to inhibit expression, but its ability to break our spirits."
    Box Office

    "An intimate portrait of the artist and a blurrier snapshot of a country in which he lives, creates and fights, the movie is stuffed with smart talking heads, archival material and fly-on-the-wall scenes..."
    New York Times

    "[F]or as much as NEVER SORRY reveals about its central subject, it reveals just as much about the place where he lives, and the way demands for freedom find methods to limbo under oppression." -- Grade: B+
    A.V. Club

    "[A]n inspiring and important documentary portrait of the Chinese artist and political dissident....Alison Klayman's film draws a clear connection between Mr. Ai's childhood and what would seem to be his utter fearlessness..."
    Wall Street Journal

    "Watching AI WEIWEI: NEVER SORRY is like experiencing a thrilling unfinished symphony: The story is enthralling, but it's not over, and there's no telling where it's going."
    Los Angeles Times

    "He radiates a mischievous sense of the absurdity -- and necessity -- of one man tossing stones at a regime this gigantic." -- Grade: A
    Entertainment Weekly

    4 stars out of 5 -- "Alison Klayman's debut doc is a remarkable portrait of a remarkable artist: Ai Weiwei....He's as uncompromising as he is unapologetic."
