Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A well-produced tribute to a complex and often exasperating personality."
‑ Phil Hall, Film Threat
"Staccato and compelling, this fast-paced biography recounts some of his views and opinions--writings that alienated people and won supporters."
‑ Mark R. Leeper, Mark Leeper's Reviews
"A documentary is only as fascinating as its subject, and, love him or hate him (most did the latter), Norman Mailer was one fascinating American."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
