ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE

"Beth B’s documentary on the singer/provocateur/No Wave icon looks, sounds and feels like a Lydia Lunch song: raw, loud, unfiltered and unflinching."

NEW YORK TIMES FEATURE

Lydia Lunch: “With a comedian, the audience waits for the punchline. In my work, the audience waits for me to punch them

in the face.”

Hyperallergic

"Beth B endows The War is Never Over with an appropriately DIY sensibility and manic, discordant energy, skillfully patching together archival footage, photographs, performances, and interviews..."

New York Times

Critic's Pick

The Reviews Hub

https://www.thereviewshub.com/149000-2/

"Beth B’s documentary is incisive and compelling if at times disturbing and chaotic but true to its subject."

Screen Queens

https://screen-queens.com/2021/06/09/sheffield-doc-fest-21-an-interview-with-beth-b/

"While the voice at the centre of this film is undeniably Lydia’s, her words represent a polyphony of female agency, foregrounded by Beth’s urgent style of filmmaking."

Telerama - Review

https://www.telerama.fr/sortir/lydia-lunch,-la-guerriere-punk-au-coeur-dun-documentaire-sauvage-et-percutant,n6604893.php

"A wild and impactful documentary...Portrait of a punk rock priestess, through its feminist commitment, its avant-garde music and its nihilistic poetry."

The Independent - Review - Critic's Choice

http://independent-magazine.org/2019/11/doc-nyc-film-

festival-nov-6-15-critics-choices/

"Always a provocateur, occasionally a chanteuse, frequently a

nihilist, Lydia Lunch performs unapologetically with the instincts

of a predator."

 

"Lunch’s life and times are in the amazing hands of director/editor/co-DP Beth B."

"These two films alone showcase the range, thematic consistency, and artistic power of No Wave and cement Beth B as a great artist."

Bedford and Bowery - New York Magazine

https://bedfordandbowery.com/2019/11/__trashed/

 

"The War Is Never Over shows Lunch at her most incendiary, verbally eviscerating the patriarchy."
