Critics reviews

Toback seems to be fighting his way out of [steterotypes]. He, or rather Jimmy, seems to know nothing of the world of art, the world of sex, the world of ethnicity, or of family, or of love, or of money. For Toback, the images are pure, abstractly beautiful, Bach-like creations. One that he had to wrench at great mental, material and moral cost from the vortex of crushing forces and from the dregs of his own being.
