"Mr. Bogosian has crossed the line that separates an exciting artist from a cultural hero. What Lenny Bruce was to the 1950s, Bob Dylan to the 1960s, Woody Allen to the 1970s—that's what Eric Bogosian is to this frightening moment of drift... I know of no one else like him in pop culture right now." - Frank Rich, New York Times
