All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (2)

  • An eye-opening, not to mention ear-opening, experience.

    September 26, 2017 | Full Review…
  • A valedictory for Mr. Davis, the music executive whose Midas touch with radio hits across genres - especially at Arista Records, from 1975-2000 - is industry legend.

    September 26, 2017 | Full Review…
  • A fawning but informative primer for music lovers with, er, very broad tastes.

    May 5, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Director Chris Perkel... hasn't made a movie so much as a prolonged tribute reel with ample material to fuel a dozen lifetime achievement award ceremonies.

    Top Critic
  • An example of how a movie can be flagrantly hagiographic, sentimental, and hypnotized by its own subject - and still make you want to keep watching it.

    April 20, 2017 | Full Review…
  • It's an extraordinary two-hour tale of a man with great ears and a passion to match who fell into a business he'd never even considered.
