Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Dunn and McFadyen have done Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart the service of resolving their eventful, four-decade career. It's a smart, lyrical, often funny movie."
‑ Stephen Cole, Globe and Mail
"Conveying information and insight without artifice, Beyond the Lighted Stage uses every frame to wittily and touchingly convey a story that had yet to be properly told -- about a band and improbable worldwide phenomenon that is Canada's own."
‑ Jim Slotek, Jam! Movies
"Aficionados will be gripped, while those not attracted to the sounds will be charmed by the characters."
‑ David Parkinson, Radio Times
"Fans will gorge on this deft, year-by-year portrait of the ultimate enduring cult band. And even a skeptic may come away with an affection for the intricate labor of Rush's skewed-time-signature epics."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"It's the three-dimensional portrait of the band members that sets the film apart."
‑ Robert Levin, Film School Rejects
"The great thing about "Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage" is that the documentary enables a new-found respect and regard for an incredibly energetic and creative band that recognize their strength as the sum of their talented parts."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"A wonderfully engaging and genuinely interesting career profile of Rush, those most derided of prog-rock shriekers, tracing their path from anonymous Toronto suburbia to self-effacing power-trio legends."
‑ Andrew Pulver, Guardian
