  • The bottom line for all these speakers is that if you follow the so-called hero's journey, you will find fame and fortune. I think we've heard this tune before.

  • Campbell's admirers will probably enjoy the documentary, but I don't think it will do much for anyone else.

  • Campbell's career and influence encompass much wider fields of interest than are considered here, despite the pic's colorful surface.

  • Solomon's approach places didacticism over revelation. The film is weighed down by a barrage of declarations from zealots in which wisdom is intertwined with the self-evident and platitudinous.

    September 29, 2011 | Rating: 2/5
  • Finding Joe feels like a homemade quilt: It's warm and comforting, but visually busy, with a repeating pattern that some will find stuffy and overwhelming.

  • Everyone's comments are thoughtful and articulate but everyone stays "on message" so steadfastly that no dialogue ever ensues. It's 20 people giving the same lecture.
