“I was captivated…”
                                                                                    Joel Schumacher, Director

Your life is a kaleidoscope of events and deep emotions translated into a very powerful aesthetic. I watched your movie and time stopped.”

                                                                                    Marina Abramovich

"It takes huge  courage to show your own piece of art to anyone, and to show a film on a big screen, to a big audience is courage in the extreme – AND it was a completely open and honest , almost disarmingly honest, autobiographical film. 
I didn’t think the music was inaudible – I loved your choice of music, and thought it acted as a really great way of moving you thru the film. I also thought the cinematography and editing were very beautiful. There is a compelling, whimsical tone enhanced by the use of light which is very more-ish 
I would have like to have seen more of you in the film – we all said the same. You have something -  a delightful, slightly vulnerable, beguiling honest charm which is lost when someone else tries to do it". Amanda Neville BFI
