COIMING EARLY 2018: THE COMPLETE WISEMAN: PART III 

Reviews

“A SINGULAR FILMMAKER. After experiencing even one of Wiseman’s cinematic journeys, it is difficult to think of any institution the same way again.”
– Eric Monder, Film Journal International

“When last we left Frederick Wiseman, he was still mad. The opening of Film Forum’s complete retrospective covered the prolific and pioneering documentarian’s angriest period. ‘The Complete Wiseman: Part II’ picks up in 1986 with a radical shift. It’s here he started immersing himself in institutions that weren’t overtly poisonous... Mid-period Wiseman films show us how hard it is to do good.”
– Matt Prigge, The Village Voice
