"CUTIE & THE BOXER", nominated for a 2013 Oscar for Feature Documentary, is a relationship movie unlike anything you've ever seen. By 1972, Ushio Shinohara was a forty-year-old artist who had been living in New York City for three years. He'd won a small but distinguished following for what he called his "boxing paintings," created by dipping fighter's gloves in paint and literally pounding at the canvas. It was around this time that Ushio met Noriko Shinohara, a 19-year-old art student who had just arrived in the United States. The two fell into a relationship which was destined to become permanent when Noriko became pregnant a few months later. Four decades on, Ushio and Noriko are still together, but their marriage is not always a healthy one. He's an alcoholic who dominates his wife and is clearly resentful that his career in art has not been more successful. Things get worse when Noriko's work, using comic-style images to express messages of female empowerment inspired by her own life, starts catching the attention of critics. Filmmaker Zachary Heinzerling offers an emotionally intense look into the sometimes volatile balance between two extremely talented and highly combative personalities.
