Critic Reviews for Deconstructing Dad: The Music, Machines and Mystery of Raymond Scott

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (1)

  • The best evidence of this troubled man's genius is provided by ample samples of his music, much of which will be familiar to fans of Warner Bros. cartoons from the '30s and '40s.

    July 13, 2012 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Like "My Architect," Nathaniel Kahn's film about his father, Louis I. Kahn, this documentary is a son's attempt to forge a posthumous bond with an elusive parent.

    July 12, 2012 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • Scott's son, Stan Warnow, made a highly personal documentary ... It isn't slick or polished but it is candid and highly personal, as Stan tries to understand his enigmatic father who was, by all accounts, a musical genius.
