“CRITICS’ PICK! ‘Call Her Applebroog,’ a brief feature about the inventive, provocative artist Ida Applebroog, is less a documentary than a love letter… Beth B is not out to deliver a comprehensive biography. Instead, she achieves a vivid snapshot of a still-vital artist late in a still-purposeful life.”– Glenn Kenny, THE NEW YORK TIMES

“REVEALING…The director has the sort of access to her subject, both logistically and emotionally, that gives the film a unique tension.”– Frank Scheck, HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

“The possibilities and limitations of art as a route to self-knowledge are on display in Beth B’s…gently incisive portrait of her mother, Ida Applebroog.”– Elise Nakhnikian, SLANT MAGAZINE

“Take it from this unbiased viewer: The film is brilliant…. Applebroog’s art is intimate and political, confessional and sometimes exhibitionist.”– Julia Felsenthal, VOGUE
