Film Comment Magazine, July 2000, v. 36, no. 4, pp. 41-43

In this article, Armour recounts the successes of video artist Anne McGuire’s work over the past six years, beginning with the 1991 video Joe DiMaggio 1,2,3, and spanning through to 1999’s, All Smiles and Sadness. An artist who embraces the imperfections of the medium, McGuire’s tapes are personal, confessional, and concise, inviting the viewer into her baffling, yet compelling, parallel reality.
