  • ...why not make a borderline bat-bleep crazy docu-something of a film chronicling the whole thing?

  • It's both inspiring and a cautionary tale, filled with drama, intrigue, hubris, comedy and tragedy. It's an American story, and a wild one at that.

  • Dramatic reenactments in documentaries are rarely that effective. And the ambitious, starry level to which they're taken in the otherwise involving biodoc "Framing John DeLorean" only underscores how distracting and unconvincing they can be.

  • Like DeLorean, this documentary admirably is not afraid to take risks.

    Jun 12, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • An uneven blend of fact and fiction.

  • It is true that no movie can tell the full story of a man's life. But movies like this one can tell us something important about our own.
