90
Alert not just to shifts in the critical zeitgeist but to accompanying changes in social mores, the fascinating film speaks to the most sophisticated students of fine-art photography without alienating casual buffs.
80
The pull of Garry Winogrand’s photographs is that they dissolve the line between art and life.
80
Both a fine introduction for those who don’t know the work and a thoughtful examination of the issues surrounding him for those who do.
80
The film puts his work convincingly and revealingly into the context of his turbulent life and the passionate politics of the times. Above all, however, the movie puts on display Winogrand’s singular way of working—and proves that, as with many of the artistic luminaries of the nineteen-sixties and seventies, his process is as original a creation as his art, and is inseparable from it.
75
Offers a decent if superficial portrait of the man and a vast sampling of the work that identifies him, undeniably, as an artist.
75
Sasha Waters Freyer forges a poignant portrait of an artist attempting to transcend the limitations of his art by refusing to see the process through.
75
Garry Winogrand hated being called “a street photographer,” even if he was regarded as the most essential of them all. The great success of Sasha Waters Freyer’s straightforward but evocative documentary Garry Winogrand: All Things Are Photographable, is how well it explains why someone could have such a strong aversion to a term that was practically invented to describe them.
75
Washington Post
A balanced and deeply satisfying documentary assessment of his work, which is lavishly on display in hundreds of the artist’s images.
70
Informative but not overwhelming, it blends biography and appreciative analysis in 90 brisk, packed minutes.
67
Most important, there are the photographs themselves – lots of them – which director Freyer freely uses to illustrate Winogrand’s genius in capturing the ambiguous now, urging the viewer to fill in the details of the story glimpsed in the shot.
