Don't Stop Believin': Everyman's Journey Reviews

Cynthia Fuchs
PopMatters

Rather than a faux psychological analysis, the film offers instead a general commentary on how class, race, and nationality-as well as gender, even more generally-shape Arnel's experience.

By the time the band arrives in Manila for Pineda's emotional homecoming, every note feels as if it's been earned.

A heartfelt verité portrait of American pop rock as a global product, reaching into the slums of Manila, and filling stadiums around the world with happy, smiling people.

Entertaining and well-edited, but ultimately shallow.

Pineda is consistently treated as human rather than legend. It's completely appropriate that the film is just good enough, nothing too extraordinary or lasting in our minds.

Applause for its ambition in scope, which makes it far more than just a commercial for some 80s band's latest nostalgia tour.

This movie works beyond just a modern-day fairy tale.

Film Journal International

Real-life Cinderella story with quiet emotion and a down-to-earth working band make this rock documentary far more than an episode of "Behind the Music."

Movie Dearest

As inspiring as much of (Arnel) Pineda's story is, Filipina director Ramona S. Diaz may be a little too enamored with her subject and, subsequently, comes across at times as less than objective.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

The movie, to its credit, is smirk-free, but director Diaz fails to craft the material into much more than an infomercial.

Powered by subject Arnel Pineda's charm and humour as well as that excellent classic rock soundtrack, Don't Stop Believin': Everyman's Journey is an inspiring and entertaining fairy tale you really can believe in.

You'd be hard pressed too many other documentaries that leave you feeling so damn great.

Pineda's ebullience is infectious, and "Don't Stop Believin': Everyman's Journey" is a pleasant story of dreams coming true.

Paste Magazine

An engaging, sweeping overview of Pineda's story, which is buoyed by the cheesy but classic sounds of Journey and Pineda's soft-spoken, humble charm.

Though Perry probably wanted nothing to do with her project, his participation might have pushed this glimpse at the band's evolution into a genuine revelation.

Diaz ... emphasizes the uplifting aspects of Pineda's Journey experience, describing how he came from poverty and delinquency, before he dedicated himself to his craft, caught a lucky break, and became an inspiration to struggling nobodies everywhere.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

The best material in the film is the loosest, capturing the perpetually insecure and overcompensating Pineda in his early concerts, leaping, bouncing, careening around as if every moment in every song were an audition for the next moment in the next song.

Pineda is a great subject, and it's obvious he's the biggest fan of the man who co-wrote and sang most of his current repertoire.
