Film Review  November 8, 2002, by Marc Savlov
"...Starring: Salma Hayek, Alfred Molina, Geoffrey Rush, Ashley Judd, Antonio Banderas, Edward Norton and Valeria Golino. Frida Kahlo, the Mexican surrealist, feminist icon, bon vivant, and revolutionary populist, lived a life that has been begging for a film version since her death in 1954 (although her parting shot -- “I hope the end is joyful, and I hope never to come back” -- might suggest otherwise)..."

"...Later on, she rediscovers the two men, Goh (Murata) and Tochi (Nakahara), in a gay bar and, learning that they have nowhere to be together that night (Tochi is married and Goh's mother has invaded his “bachelor” pad), Sayoko offers them the use of a room in her tiny apartment. While they are upstairs trysting, Sayoko is downstairs thumbing through a coffee table book of Frida Kahlo paintings..."

Performa / Dance's Artist and Muse
Performa / Dance's program of four pensive and sensitive works explored physical and emotional distress and pain in great depth
Arts Review  June 7, 2018, by Jonelle Seitz
"...In a program note, Hart described her experience performing, years ago, in Minneapolis choreographer Wynn Fricke's "Two Fridas" as "pivotal." The work, based on Frida Kahlo's painting The Two Fridas and performed by guest dancers Anais Di Filippo and Francesca Dugarte, both originally from Venezuela, was second on the program, continuing the Performa/Dance ethos of presenting work from Hart's contemporaries alongside her own work. In Fricke's riffs on the painting, in which two versions of Kahlo sit side by side on a bench, the dancers morphed between mirroring each other and becoming conjoined, exploring the dualities and inescapable tethers – among them, physical distress and pain – that are the subjects of the Kahlo painting...."

"...She became “the most macha of all the machos,” observes one of the film’s commentators. With her short-cropped hair and androgynous appearance, she was known as a great seducer of women, with wives of diplomats and bold-faced names like Frida Kahlo and Ava Gardner among her amorous dalliances..."

Stupidity
Could it be?: a study of human stupidity that's not, um …, stupid?

Film Review  May 21, 2004, by Marc Savlov
"..."Dumb is sexy" is another of the film’s arguments, one that can hardly be argued with a straight face in the, um, face of Paris Hilton and her Internet ilk. From Fifties-era "duck and cover" exercises to the surreal questioning of actress Salma Hayek by a media member who is overeager to know how she felt wearing a unibrow while portraying artist Frida Kahlo, Stupidity is relentless in its pursuit of an intellectual handle on a decidedly anti-intellectual topic..."

"Selections from the Permanent Collection"
Mexic-Arte Museum's showing of selections from its permanent collection is a little confusing in setup and somewhat rough, but there's also something charming about its rusticity.
Arts Review  November 21, 2003, by Sam Martin
"...Many of the themes you've come to expect with 20th-century Mexican art are present, including the Mexican Revolution, Día de los Muertos, and the struggle of the working class to break the bonds of poverty and political isolation. There are the obligatory photos of Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo (by Guillermo Zamora), who are no doubt two of Mexico's most inspiring artists from the last century, though I wondered if the images would have been part of the museum's permanent collection had the subjects been less well-known..."

"...Blossoms of Fire is a bright, amiable chronicle of the vivid lives of the women of Juchitán, a small, sun-soaked city on the Isthmus of Tehuantepec in Oaxaca, Mexico. The Tehuantepec women are already famous -- from the paintings of Miguel Covarrubias and Frida Kahlo, from their embroidered handicrafts, and from their prominent role in the COCEI, the political party that challenged the long-standing single-party rule of the PRI and has maintained a foothold in the region since 1989..."
