Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Booker sparkles in the archival performance clips, and director Lily Keber wisely homes in on his live solo performances, bringing out his character and talent."
‑ Kevin Warwick, Chicago Reader
"...despite the title of the doc, which conjures up a madcap, heartbreaking tale, the film is a mostly workmanlike biopic that unfortunately can never match the energy of the subject it's trying to capture"
‑ Kevin Jagernauth, The Playlist
