Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There's certainly a profound and valuable documentary to be made about our eldest living senior citizens. Sadly, "Walter: Lessons From the World's Oldest People" isn't it."
‑ Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
"The leisurely, intimate [Walter] could have been truly touching but misses the mark. Starting with its misleading title, the film never finds a core message beyond that good, clean living will allow you to live a long time."
‑ Eric Monder, Film Journal International
"The filmmakers are constantly on camera, eating tacos or commenting on the interviews with insight like this: "She's just such a sweet lady. She smiles all of the time.""
‑ Miriam Bale, New York Times
"[A] dim-witted and embarrassing first-person documentary ..."
‑ Inkoo Kang, Village Voice
