Reviews

“Ms. Lebowitz’s endearing narcissism is a study in the notion that arrogance and insecurity are largely two sides of the same cocktail coaster.”
– Ginia Bellafonte, The New York Times

Lebowitz is wry, funny, smart and insanely quick; she and Scorsese didn’t set the topics for discussion in advance, and the film’s energy reflects its of-the-moment quality.”
– Moira Macdonald, The Seattle Times
