Critic Reviews for Diego Maradona

All Critics (78) | Top Critics (26) | Fresh (70) | Rotten (8)

  • The tragedy of Maradona is that he was too simple to learn how to play anything other than soccer-and the sins for which he was punished, it turns out, were not really his, but ours.

    October 11, 2019 | Full Review…
  • I think [Asif Kapadia] can make anyone interesting... This is almost like the third part of [his] trilogy about what can happen to you with early fame.

    October 3, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The Dionysian frenzy of hero worship is well captured by the film, though it could use more footage from the field of play, where Maradona redefined what it means to be fleet of foot.

    September 23, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Most documentaries cut frequently to talking heads. Kapadi... doesn't do that, preferring to keep the viewer firmly planted in the narrative he's crafted from hundreds of hours of never-seen archival footage. The approach is hugely effective.

    September 20, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Director Asif Kapadia, who also made the Ayrton Senna and Amy Winehouse documentaries, lets the familiar story of a gifted kid who follows early success with fame and then tragedy unfold. But he asks us to think about ourselves as well.

    September 20, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Though a tad overlong at two-hours-plus - even as it condenses its framing to the footballer's 1980s stint in Naples, Italy - Kapadia's handling of Maradona's eventful rise and ignominious decline is a bracing, well-controlled run across a rocky pitch.
