Ratings & Reviews

  1. Yugosalvia Plath's rating of the film Regarding Susan Sontag

  2. MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film Regarding Susan Sontag

    A baroque editing style, replete with an overabundance of rococo imagery and kitschy (or campy?) juxtapositions, is detrimental to an otherwise interesting documentary.

  3. Magda Magdy's rating of the film Regarding Susan Sontag

    Life, death and everything in between.

  4. -REM-'s rating of the film Regarding Susan Sontag

  5. Dzernera's rating of the film Regarding Susan Sontag

    Surely a good material for extending the knowledge of persona and contribution of one of the greatest female thinkers of the 20th century.

  6. Justine Vernera's rating of the film Regarding Susan Sontag

    The whole sand+bottle thing was really weird and unnecessary. Other than that - nice, informative, decent.

  7. Stasya Korotkova's rating of the film Regarding Susan Sontag

    A black and white picture of Sontag placed into a bottle with sand falling down on it in slow-motion (and some sad music). Like, really?! But I disagree with the previous comments that dwelling on her sexuality is a bad thing.

  8. Justin Senkbile's rating of the film Regarding Susan Sontag

    Like a lot of "nonfiction" film portraiture, it feels like it was made by someone who knows her work but has never actually lived any of it

  9. Cindy's rating of the film Regarding Susan Sontag

    very informative. was surprised at how much focus fell on sontag's vulnerability and determination to live.

  10. sfdgdfggsggsogfgs's rating of the film Regarding Susan Sontag

  11. nouvelle vague 1960's rating of the film Regarding Susan Sontag

    As someone who had heard of Susan Sontag,but didn't know a great deal about her.I found this documentary about her private and public life,very informative.I agree with the comments,that the film tended to dwell on her bisexuality and the controversies that surrounded her life.However,I do think that the film is a good starting point ,for anyone who is interested in a writer and thinker,who believed in free speech.

  12. Diderot's rating of the film Regarding Susan Sontag

    This is a hatchet job, completely disregarding Sontag's life-work in order to make a point about her sexuality (more or less reducing her to everything she tried to avoid being reduced to). Embarrassing, reductive, and cruel.

  13. Polyglot's rating of the film Regarding Susan Sontag

    She lived the fucking life! :P

  14. Valentina Sanchez's rating of the film Regarding Susan Sontag

    The question remains: What would Susan think of this? Beautifully done documentary!

  15. Khristine's rating of the film Regarding Susan Sontag

  16. Sarah E. Fonseca's rating of the film Regarding Susan Sontag

    A thorough portrait of the literary critic laden with solid archival footage and impressive interviews with those near and dear to the writer (Harriet Sohmers Zwerling stole the show). I wish this doc dealt less with Sontag's sexuality and more with her work, mentorship, & ideological backpedaling. The omission of her juicy, short-lived beef with Adrienne Rich is a glaring one. Not a fan of Clarkson's voice.
