"Joyce Wieland's films are among the most endearing I have ever seen, making her point and sealing the issue in a womanly way without any concern for ragged edges. 'La Raison Avant la Passion' is a whirlwind view of Canada with an anti-dialectical premise." - Douglas Pringle, ArtsCanada

"REASON OVER PASSION... is Joyce Wieland's major film so far. With its many eccentricities, it is a glyph of her artistic personality; a lyric vision tempered by an aggressive form and a visionary patriotism mixed with ironic self parody. It is a film to be seen many times." - P. Adams Sitney, Film Culture
