Heinzerling’s beautifully shot, painfully intimate look at the ageing couple’s struggle to survive amid personal and financial strain is both heartbreaking and intricately profound. This is a story about creative desire so strong it hurts. Without a neat conclusion, Cutie and the Boxer implies an optimistic future by showing how the struggle continues.” – Eric Kohn Indiwire
