Critic Reviews for City Of Gold

All Critics (62) | Top Critics (24) | Fresh (56) | Rotten (6)

  • Gabbert's film is part portrait, part city symphony. It celebrates Gold as a fixture of his native Los Angeles and L.A. as in thrall to its stalwart guide.

    April 1, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • There's an honesty in what Gold writes and the way he writes it, which is why his words have so much impact. The film has a similar impact to one of his reviews.

    April 1, 2016 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • It's a documentary that is ostensibly a profile of a man, but is really about the vibrant city he inhabits, beyond the Hollywood sheen and the grit of Compton.

    March 25, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • It's a neat little bit of hagiography, dwelling fondly on his quirks, but that's OK. For people who want to taste the world, Gold is a patron saint.

    March 24, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • A colorful and loving tribute to the kinds of restaurants that food critics once ignored - and a few fancy places as well.

    March 24, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • As cultural archaeology, unearthing the relationship between food and a city, food and a critic, a city and a critic and a swirling stew of all the above, it's fantastic.
