The Life and Death of Peter Sellers Reviews

March 4, 2019
The film is awash with psychedelic visuals, '60s cinematography and a dizzying mishmash of devices reminiscent of iconic films like Dr. Strangelove and The Pink Panther. However, like [Peter] Sellers himself, Life and Death lacks genuine personality.

The film makes you care so little for its subject that you might be compelled to turn it off were it not for Rush's valiant mimicry.

We get movie scenes within movie scenes, and Rush as Sellers breaking character to become Sellers' mom or Edwards, commenting on Sellers, and it all draws too much attention to itself.

Sustains interest most of the way, but combination of an unsympathetic central figure and patchy recreation of events involving numerous famous people makes for an ambitiously told life story that finally doesn't cut it.
