Depp does a fine job of narrating unobtrusively, negotiating Steadman's free-ranging musings and keeping them on track. Steadman is genial, witty and self-deprecating.

Ralph Steadman is one of the greatest, most underappreciated living artists, so it's wonderful that this celebratory documentary has arrived. It also happens to be one of the finest docs ever made about an artist.

The salient, liveliest parts of For No Good Reason - the title comes from Thompson's reply when Steadman once asked him, "Why are we doing this?" - are to be found in the artist's display of his work and recollections of the eccentrics he met.

For No Good Reason details the famed wild-man cartoonist's career with a stylistic daring that doesn't quite match its subject's, but is nonetheless in keeping with his unconventional spirit.

The inventively shot and constructed documentary "For No Good Reason" is an absorbing look at the unique, surreal work of British cartoonist Ralph Steadman.

Ponderous and lofty but not without its laid-back charms and insights.

"For No Good Reason" is less revealing than a standard hourlong television tribute might have been. We learn almost nothing about Mr. Steadman's life, and too little about the non-Thompson-related aspects of his oeuvre.

For No Good Reason is an absolute mess from start to finish, a portrait of an artist that's almost rendered redundant by his art

[It becomes] less interesting as it stretches to feature length, sometimes resembling a handsomely illustrated CV.

The result is a bit unwieldy, casting too wide a net to really plumb its subject's depths, and defanging some of Steadman's acid wit with an overly busy, hit-and-miss aesthetic approach.

When a documentary feels the urge to shout about its celebrity cast with a lengthy, elaborate opening-credits sequence, could it be making up for shortcomings elsewhere?

There's no questioning the love that Paul and his interview subjects feel about Steadman. But the movie's problem isn't a dearth of adoration -- it's a lack of focus.

Charlie Paul isn't content to let his stock footage and interviewees lead for him, driven as he is to "make something out of a frame of mind," though to needlessly busy effect.

Paul's decision to pepper the proceedings with animated stretches, which surely sounded good on paper, proves relatively disastrous...
