Synopsis


"A concise and absorbing portrait of a powerful creative personality…sure to pique the interest
of novices without insulting the sophistication of devotees. Otto-Bernstein has performed
heroic work in digging up of Mr. Wilson’s pieces."
-A.O. Scott, The New York Times


"Brisk and invigorating. Communicates the thrill of Wilson's innovations
and the magnetism of his personality so robustly, you may be inspired to run away
from home and start a groundbreaking theater commune of your own."
-Jan Stuart, Newsday



"Terrific!"
-John Pitcher, The Village Voice



"Excellent…. Includes many fascinating samples of his work."
-Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader



"Fascinating…. The artist takes on an epic dimension in Otto-Bernstein’s film….
A portrait of an artist at his most essential, in every sense."
-Carina Chocano, Los Angeles Times



"Not only does this film offer a comprehensive portrait of a fascinating and underexplored leader of the American avant-garde in the late 20th century, it ends up making some compelling connections between his works and the rich, occasionally self-destructive trajectory of the life that forged them…. Otto-Bernstein has found a veritable treasure trove of material…. Wilson acolytes—for
whom this film is a must-see—will likely be especially intrigued by its lingering on Wilson’s
early work with brain-damaged children."
-Chris Jones, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
