Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: You have almost certainly never seen a better documentary about yarn than "Yarn." It isn't perfect - it's a little too airy and artsy in spots - but still, thread and string should be jealous. – Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, Jun 23, 2016

Rotten: This slender documentary's surprising disinterest in exploring related larger topics ultimately makes for a very superficial treatment of its subject. – Dennis Harvey, Variety, Jun 21, 2016

Fresh: Setting out to show the range of expression found in a field of craft it feels is too often dismissed as a trivial women's pastime, Una Lorenzen's Yarn showcases four artists doing things with crochet your spinster great-aunt probably never imagined. – John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 20, 2016

Fresh: The film offers fascinating insight into what yarn can do in the talented hands of those determined to elevate mere craft to high art. – Amy Brady, Village Voice, Jun 23, 2016
