“The life of this visionary entrepreneur is far bigger than a single film, but director Lorna Tucker does a decent job of compacting Westwood’s iconoclastic legacy.” – Monica Castillo, Little White Lies
“WESTWOOD: PUNK, ICON, ACTIVIST uses interviews, archive footage and intimate fly-on-the-wall access to get (almost) to the heart of this remarkable woman; although one suspects that Westwood will always keep some secrets firmly up her sleeve.” – Nikki Braughan, Screen International
