A conversation with Harry Mavromichalis about his new film, "Olympia" (Dukakis)

 

2021 REVIEWS:

THE NEWNAN TIMES-HERALD (4/9/2021)

“A documentary worthy of its subject and lively enough to engage viewers.”

INSTINCT MAGAZINE (4/3/2021)

“Dukakis is fearless in what she reveals in this documentary.”

IRISH FILM CRITIC (3/21/2021)

“Funny, authentic, and such a pleasure to watch.”

ECLECTIC ARTS (3/24/2021) ★★★★★

“What an incredible artist. Highly recommended.”

HORNET: Dan Loughry (3/24/2021)

“If it was a photo, it would be a collage of hundreds of pictures of the subject creating one definitive likeness, difficult to figure out up close, but resplendent with a bit of distance.”

BOBBY RIVERS TV (1/18/2021)

“There's not one dull, dishonest moment in OLYMPIA. You made me fall in love with the unique, authentic Olympia Dukakis all over again.”

ROGERS MOVIE NATION (3/14/2021) ★★★☆

“An adoring portrait of a brassy woman made of bronze.”

QUEERTY: David Reddish (3/25/2021)

"It’s a grand—and often very funny—a tribute to an early, ally voice for LGBTQ equality, and to a performer as talented as she is intriguing."

 

2020 REVIEWS:
 

ROGEREBERT.COM (7/9/2020)

“It is a pleasure to spend time with Dukakis, who is always not just open to but hungry for revelation, growth, and connection, giving the documentary a deliciously buoyant quality.                 ”

THE SPOOL (7/30/2020)

"To be privy to such a rawness is awe-inspiring."

FILM THREAT (7/8/2020)

“Olympia Dukakis may be in her 80s, but she is more passionate, real, and progressive than a million woke millennials screaming on the internet. Watch Olympia and find out why Tales of the City author Armistead Maupin calls her “an octogenarian m**********r.”

ALLIANCE OF WOMEN FILM JOURNALISTS (7/8/2020)

“Dukakis is a force of nature and in Mavromichalis’ adept hands she comes across as a dame you wish you knew personally.”

BATTLE ROYALE WITH CHEESE (7/12/2020)

"'Olympia' delivers a deeply personal and philosophical documentary."

CULTURE MIX ONLINE (7/13/2020)

"'Olympia' is a movie that understands that a documentary about a celebrity shouldn't really be about just chronicling a lifestyle but instead should be more about opening up a window, however briefly, into someone's soul."

MOVIE MOVES ME (7/17/2020)

"The beauty of 'Olympia' is in its simplicity. It allows the viewer to see a top-notch actor from a very real, no-frills perspective."

THE REELNESS (8/7/2020)

"By the end, you will feel like you really know Olympia Dukakis well, which is the hallmark of an excellent documentary."

THE MERCURY NEWS (7/16/2020)

"Mavromichalis captures it all with elan, revealing the inner workings of a creative spitfire."

EDGE MEDIA NETWORK (7/10/2020)

“Unmissable. 'Olympia' is an exceptionally intimate fly-on-the-wall documentary.”

IMPRESSIONIST MEDIA (7/6/2020)

“'Olympia' is an honest conversation between Dukakis and the filmmaker; viewers will feel like they just pulled up a chair.”

LOS ANGELES TIMES (7/14/2020)

"'Olympia' is much more about the personal than the professional, crafting an interior portrait of a woman at home in her own skin."

THEATER PIZZAZZ (7/10/2020)

“What we get to see is (warts and all) a brave woman of indomitable spirit, a dirty mouth, and a freedom of expression that is a joy to witness.”

THIRD COAST REVIEW (7/10/2020)

“Mavromichalis is wise enough to simply get out of the way and allow his subject to roaming free in whatever space they’re in. The results are intimate, enlightening, and often hilarious.”

FAB AFTER FIFTY (7/7/2020)

“If you are looking for a dose of inspiration, then look no further.”

DISAPPOINTMENT MEDIA (7/10/2020)

“'Olympia' is an insightful biography of a brilliant talent.”

RED CARPET CRASH (7/9/2020)

“Olympia Dukakis is a marvel to behold.”

 

2018/19 REVIEWS:

HOLLYWOOD REPORTER (11/14/2018)

“Harry Mavromichalis' documentary about Oscar-winning actress Olympia Dukakis delivers an uncommonly personal, cinema verite-style portrait of its fascinating, iconoclastic subject.”

JEZEBEL (11/09/2018)

“The effect of Mavromichalis's process can be stunning.”

CBS NEWS (11/06/2018)

“A thoroughly captivating film, befitting its arresting star.”

THE REELNESS

"By the end, you will feel like you really know Olympia Dukakis well, which is the hallmark of an excellent documentary."

WINSTON-SALEM JOURNAL (4/4/2019)

“It is an exciting, profane, and inspiring film.”

UNSEEN FILMS (11/11/2018)

“It is as good a cinematic biography as you are ever likely to see.”

THE FILM EXPERIENCE (11/13/2018)

"'Olympia' (the film) proves to be a winningly defiant demand for this woman to be recognized as one of the greats.”

BRAZILIAN PRESS (11/8/2018)

“Harry Mavromichalis extracts powerful revelations from the actress herself, as well as captures intimate moments of simplicity, crafting an inspirational study on an unlimited artist.”

HOLLYWOOD GREEK REPORTER (6/11/2019)

“'Olympia' is a beautiful, unusually personal look at an actress who comes across as always forging her own path rather than following the rules of others.”

THE NATIONAL HERALD (11/14/2018)

“Mavromichalis has captured the essence of this extraordinary woman.”
