Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"His interviews suggest candour and humility and a wonderful enthusiasm for whatever cause he's espousing."
‑ Evan Williams, The Australian
"Jolley and de Garis never come close to revealing whatever lurks in the heart of this intelligent, ambitious, plainly unhappy and not particularly admirable man, who bears scars from many wounds, not all of them self-inflicted."
‑ Jake Wilson, The Age (Australia)
"This is a knockout story, superbly told."
‑ Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile
"It's an absorbing and honest film, but a sad one."
‑ Julie Rigg, MovieTime, ABC Radio National
"An extraordinary account of a life spectacularly but not always wisely or well-lived."
‑ Margaret Pomeranz, At the Movies (Australia)
"An indelible vision of a compromised, peculiar man."
‑ Brian Duff, FILMINK (Australia)
"I couldn't stop watching this riveting documentary about a man so obsessed by celebrity that he became one. But the story doesn't end there. Wealth, fame, power and love nose-dive on life's slippery dip."
‑ Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
