Fearless documentary filmmaker Laura Poitras’s career-long pursuit of truth and justice finds powerful expression in an epic story of art, activism, and survival. Made in collaboration with renowned artist Nan Goldin, All the Beauty and the Bloodshedentwines the mission of PAIN—an advocacy group she founded to raise awareness about the billionaire Sackler family’s integral role in the ongoing crisis of opioid overdoses—with an intimate journey through Goldin’s life, from her rebellious adolescence and immersion in New York City’s thriving underground arts scene to her personal experiences of addiction and the AIDS epidemic. Through it all, her indelible photographs and candid reflections on memory and trauma reveal her unyielding solidarity with marginalized communities that refuse to remain silent.

Just this week, I was looking at the "Year Best" lists and wondering whether to get the French blu-ray. Glad I didn't.

Very glad I held out, not watching this on HBO Max, waiting for the Criterion blu-ray. The film deserves all the plaudits awarded it. Criterion's blu-ray had a reference-quality picture and the soundtrack plays really well at home. I saw it together with my friend, who makes documentaries for a living. He had nothing but praise. A complex, gripping two hours. As a medical doctor, I probably see the subject material differently than the majority of the public. However, it's no less powerful for this. Remarkable editing too. The choice to end the film with a completely unpredictable arc, was quite disorientating. We discussed it at length.
