"With great respect and sincere love the filmmaker invites us into the world of a tender human being. Jon Cory is a body art performer playing with and questioning his identity. Through barrier-breaking access and outstanding images the filmmaker allows us to get under his skin, to explore the most intimate details of Jon. From a strange, far away world he reaches out to us and makes us fall in love with him. It is a true masterpiece."
- Jury for Best Student Documentary, IDFA 2010
"What's in a name is the riveting portrait of Jon Cory, a charismatic NYC body-art performer whose raw and provocative acts - and their meticulous preparations - challenge society’s limited views on gender."
