Hampered by limited video of Jobriath, the film lacks a sense of him or his music.
A cubist portrait of an unknowable man and a dramatic whodunit about an artist-victim who died by a thousand cuts.
Documentary maker Kieran Turner attempts to rehabilitate Jobriath's reputation, presenting him as a gifted musician and a gay-rights pioneer.
A long-forgotten, envelope-pushing figure of 1970s rock will be hard to forget again after Jobriath A.D.
Eye-opener introduces a glam rocker who should be a better known part of pop history.
In unexceptional fashion, Turner uses a parade of talking heads and multiple montages of grainy film clips and archival stills to paint a picture of the artist-as-chameleon.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Because Jobriath himself was so elusive-there are no archival interviews with him included here, presumably because they don't exist-Jobriath A.D. itself seems elusive.
