All the Beauty and the Bloodshed
Follows the life of artist Nan Goldin and the downfall of the Sackler family, the pharmaceutical dynasty who was greatly responsible for the opioid epidemic's unfathomable death toll.
‘Elegantly shaped and paced, “All the Beauty and the Bloodshed” relates two entwined stories. One tracks Goldin’s emergence as an anti-opioid activist… Intertwined with that narrative is an often-melancholic portrait of Goldin that begins in her difficult childhood
… Poitras’s marshalling of all this information is exceptionally graceful. She has an abundance of fantastic material at her disposal—including a generous selection of Goldin’s artwork—but what makes the movie work so well is how Poitras seamlessly uses the different sections of Goldin’s life to weave a coherent portrait of the artist.’—Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
