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.
Rotten: This slender documentary's surprising disinterest in exploring related larger topics ultimately makes for a very superficial treatment of its subject.
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.
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.
I loved this movie - Saw it in San Jose at the Quilt Museum. It shows international fiber and yarn artists and their huge installations and creativity. Plus it made me appreciate yarn and its expressiveness even more. Recommend it highly!
