Critic Reviews for The Beautiful Truth

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (8)

It's Michael Moore without the truculence, PBS without the pretension, CNN without the commercial grandstanding.

Comes off mostly like a hybrid of retro-style educational film and late-night infomercial.

November 26, 2008 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

[A] condescending, manipulative film.

November 26, 2008 | Full Review…

The Beautiful Truth is a documentary about contemporary health hazards and alternative treatments.

November 14, 2008 | Rating: 2/5

There may be truth in what Kroschel says, but you won't find it in this pedantic film, which has all the veracity of a late-night TV infomercial.

November 14, 2008 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

The director's suggestion that big pharmaceutical companies have no interest in actually curing cancer is credible, but the film itself unfortunately makes Kroschel's beliefs come off like just so much hippie propaganda.
