"It’s as powerful a 15 minutes as you’ll ever see open a film; Howard’s domestic answer to Steven Spielberg’s D-Day sequence in Saving Private Ryan..."

THE SATURDAY EVENING POST

"Gladys Murphy was the editor who was really assigned all of this footage and she built it out, about a 12 minute sequence or something like that, and we looked at it and we said, 'well, there's a little repetition but we can't chop this up. This is breathtaking and heartbreaking.' ...I think it's probably the most harrowing sequence that I've ever been involved with as a director, and, of course, I shot not a frame."

"Carlomusto and editors Geof Bartz and Gladys Mae Murphy effectively frame the biography with footage shot during Kramer's hospitalization in 2013 while recovering from complications following a liver transplant... Even more so is the hospital-room ceremony in which Kramer and his longtime partner, David Webster, are married."
