Critic Reviews for Filthy Gorgeous: The Bob Guccione Story

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (5)

The film can't resist trying to turn Mr. Guccione into a tragic figure, an image that will have fewer buyers than his flagship magazine does today.

There are some wonderful moments in this film by Barry Avrich.

Wall Street Journal
Top Critic

Feels like a somewhat superficial, "authorized" bio that nonetheless holds attention via its surfeit of archival materials and input from diverse interviewees.

It's dispiriting to see [Guccione] subjected to this paint-by-numbers biographical documentary.

Globe and Mail
Top Critic

The film's talking heads format grinds on at times, but at least the quotes are good and occasionally even shocking.

Engaging, entertaining and passionately told, Avrich has created an excellent behind-the-man documentary.
