Told mostly through haunting, often chilling visual fragments, this handsomely mounted and unusually gripping account amounts to an important exercise in biography: It faithfully restores Spielrein to her rightful place as a crucial contributor to the fields of child psychology and psychoanalysis.

Village Voice
This evocative film is a poignant testament to the twin forces of love (however blighted) and the unconscious.

New York Post
Hats off to Elisabeth Marton, who has taken a bunch of dry facts and fashioned them into the gorgeous My Name Was Sabina Spielrein.

Variety
Engaging doc should stir psychologists and feminists.

New York Daily News
As complex as its subject's life and - like her - both flawed and fascinating.

However fascinating the source material, there's something less than cinematic about 90 minutes of watching people read letters in front of windows.

The Hollywood Reporter
A fascinating historical tale is rendered with less than compelling results in this pseudo-documentary.
