  1. 80
    Playing like a video coffee table book displaying some of the man’s most notorious work.

    Offers a fast, efficient and richly satisfying look at an iconoclastic artist and his groundbreaking work.
  3. 63
    The movie is overwhelmingly positive. It would have helped if Araki's critics had more of a say.
  4. Viewers are left to draw their own conclusions, which inevitably will be colored by individual reactions to unabashed frontal nudity.
  5. More of a sketch than a fully developed portrait.
  6. 60
    Admittedly compulsive in both sex and shutterbuggery, Araki has long lived on the art-porn border, though this doc aims to show him as conversant in flowers, kitties, skies, and neorealist kids' faces as he is with bondage.
  7. Illuminating, if not exactly edifying.
