[2015] Trevor Seyller: Frida

A Few Small Nips

Frida and Diego Rivera

Self Portrait

FRIDA

"I paint myself because I am so often alone, because I am the subject I know best."

Awards

The film is inventive and gorgeously colored, from the opening shot of a peacock in a garden to later renderings of Kahlo's paintings as tableaux vivants. But the script, based on Hayden Herrera's biography, resembles Rivera's murals—it's writ large, broad and flat, with spasms of agitprop style that come together as heavily as the ox-yoke eyebrows on Frida's face. -Joe Morgenstern
