  • Henrique Amud's rating of the film Very Semi-Serious

    Delightful. Leah Wolchok's not-so-fly-on-the-wall style works just wonders in showing us a glimpse of the life and work of all these crazy wonderful artists, most of which could be the main focus of other documentaries. It ain't easy being a cartoonist, and it's much harder to get published by the New Yorker, but even if it won't change your life, it'll still change your life.
