  • A touching, delightful and exceptionally well-crafted new documentary, "AKA Doc Pomus" follows the life and career of Pomus, who wrote "Save the Last Dance for Me," "A Teenager in Love," "Viva Las Vegas" and scores of other hits.

    October 31, 2013 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • Expertly put together by editor Amy Linton, "AKA Doc Pomus" uses its wealth of material to create the sense of a man with a genius for putting undistilled emotion into his songs.

    October 10, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • This static documentary portrait relies on the usual panning over photos and tag-team interviews, but the format, like the radio length of a song, doesn't get in the way of its subject's heart.

    October 3, 2013 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • A moving, un-mawkish portrait of a songwriting icon.
