Time Out says
Constance Marks’s film is a simple cut-and-paste job, drawing on new interviews and archive, but what it lacks in refinement it makes up for in infectious warmth. Clash’s story is a ‘follow your dream’ tale as he recalls making the leap from cutting up his dad’s coat to make puppets to working for television in his twenties.
It’s a story of inheritance as much as innovation – Clash became one of the key torch-bearers of Henson’s legacy after Jim’s death in 1990. There are hints that sometimes he has had his hand so far up his puppet as to neglect family life, but watching Clash (well, Elmo) meet a terminally ill child will have you in floods.
