Documentaries are not easily found for artists. I am an avid Yayoi Kusama fan. When I heard there was a movie being made I couldn't wait for it to come out. I went to the premiere and loved it. I smiled with delight and excitement throughout the entire movie. I purchased the DVD because I had to own it. This movie did not disappoint. I have watched it 3 times now. If you want to learn more about Yayoi Kusama, watch this documentary. If you want to learn and be introduced to an incredible living artist, watch this documentary. If you want to learn about art, see this documentary. If you support women and their plight to be noticed, watch this documentary. I loved it. I highly recommend it. Heather Lenz did a wonderful job showing us who Yayoi Kusama is, what her art is about and why she is such an important living artist in our lifetime.
