Cutie And The Boxer Review

Image for Cutie And The Boxer

The Shinoharas, Noriko and Ushio, are a married couple whose art and lives form the subject of this documentary. Alcoholism, money worries and the frictions of their New York lives are flies in the ointment for the pair, as Zachary Heinzerling's camera unsparingly records.


Made over five years, this unflinching insight into the travails of being an artist is also an affectionate portrait of Ushio and Noriko Shinohara, whose diametric characteristics have enabled them to stay married and creative over 40 often tempestuous years.

A trip down the rabbit hole of married life and modern art.
