    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    Mr. Heinzerling is an artist too. The window he has opened onto the lives of his subjects is a powerful and beautiful visual artifact in its own right.

    Los Angeles Times Betsy Sharkey

    For all of the eccentricities that come in any telling of an artist's life, Cutie and the Boxer's real magic is in so beautifully telling a familiar story of husbands and wives.

    Because Cutie and Boxer resists easy sentimentality, its view of life and love is all the more powerful.
