Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There's nothing like watching a guy hit rock bottom and then try to crawl back up again. Or as that heartless record industry weasel puts it, 'People love a good tragedy.' Especially one set to a good beat."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"This is biopic as raving rumination. But it is also a surprisingly compassionate redemption story."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"This has writing that could charitably be called inane, and a wholly repulsive star."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"The film soars on the talent of Paul Kaye's magnificent portrayal of a pop music icon's self abuse, descent into total deafness and rebirth ..."
‑ S. James Wegg, JWR
"At the center of all this is Kaye's flat-out brilliant performance."
‑ David Cornelius,
"You may ... find the picture as undisciplined as Frankie's wild coif. I see the chaos, like the coif, to be tangled but pointed, an endearingly calculated mess."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"The movie works because of its heedless comic intensity; Kaye and his writer-director, Michael Dowse, chronicle the rise and fall of Frankie Wilde as other directors have dealt with emperors and kings."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"full review in Greek"
‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
"O diretor Michael Dowse confere energia admirável a este filme espetacular que conta, ainda, com uma atuação arrebatadora de Paul Kaye."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Paul Kaye's performance is revelatory. A surprisingly warm-hearted mockumentary."
‑ Dan Jardine, Cinemania
"The formula doesn't entirely stick, but Dowse's visual veracity towers over any narrative shortcomings Tong presents."
‑ Robert K. Elder, Chicago Tribune
"A raucous, uproarious satire of the dance-club scene."
‑ Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"One of the most graphic, scary, funny and imaginative depictions of drug addiction ever filmed."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"Bright, noisy, and surprisingly fulfilling, it keeps its adrenaline rush under deceptively easy control."
‑ Rob Vaux, Flipside Movie Emporium
"When Kaye tries to be funny, he's odd; when he tries to be sad, he's boring; and when he tries to be happy, he's . . . just weird."
‑ Phil Villarreal, Arizona Daily Star
