  • The barrier that looms over so many posthumous artist biographies isn't broken through here, but Cutler's documentary does get you close up so you can feel the texture and sense the breadth of that wall.

    January 5, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Even though Cutler takes creative license, occasionally using animation and intertitles to insert unnecessary commentary for dramatic effect, the impact of the never-heard-before audio is astounding.

    December 30, 2020 | Full Review…
  • It is terribly sad and one more reminder that fame on a mass level can be a curse. Why the best ones rarely feel they deserve it remains a mystery this movie doesn't try to solve.

    December 30, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • This felt more like a simple refocusing of our attention, as the parade of greatest-hits clips played on, and the admiring voices commented and sorrowed in turn. Not quite a waste, but a missed opportunity for sure.

    December 30, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Highlighted by never-before-heard audio interviews that were part of a 2005 oral history, this polished, affecting overview is far from exhaustive but skilfully sums up Belushi's life and death.

    December 30, 2020 | Full Review…
  • R.J. Cutler's Belushi is a far more rounded look at the self-destructive comedy great than most of what we have seen before.
