Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The committed artists of Something's Gonna Live, while grateful for their remarkable careers, are not sentimentalists. What a challenge their body of work presents to current and future filmmakers!"
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"The film is at its best when it shows these masters at work, both then and now."
‑ Annlee Ellingson, Moving Pictures Magazine
"Hollywood reserves several minutes out of every year to commemorate its past. Fortunately filmmakers like Daniel Raim are here to fill out the rest of the schedule."
‑ Christopher Long, Movie Metropolis
"What sets the film apart are its tender sense of camaraderie (felt in many candid, informal conversations) and its thematic heft: these artists genuinely want to reflect the human condition, a value often lost in today's technological extravaganzas."
‑ Doug Cummings, Filmjourney
