Though it does feel a bit like a promo video at times, there is always a kind of tortured honesty in Numan ...
Directors Steve Read and Rob Alexander center their documentary on the production of Numan's 2013 album Splinter; this approach allows for a fine introduction to Numan's music, but the other subjects are addressed too briefly to cohere as a narrative.
Gary Numan: Android In La La Land is ... as much a love story as it is a traditional music documentary, and while ... structured around the rise-and-fall-and-rise trajectory of Numan's career, it is the personal journey ... that propels the film.
Numan emerges as an unlikely star from his guide to a rock life, and more likeable for it.
A sweetly compelling music documentary.
It's stylish, cleanly structured and pacey, but in the end it feels more like a fan doc than an objective appraisal.
Full of fine musical moments and sparky domestic banter, this unveiling of the unexpectedly sweet side of a famously inert pop icon should intrigue more than devoted Numanoids.
The film focuses on real estate and Numan's move from the UK to the US. It's like a celebrity version of APlace in the Sun.
An affectionate and partisan portrait of the man in the machine.
Gary Numan: Android in La La Land may be howlingly funny in places but it's no joke.
The focus on the album's production allows for poignancy that comes from observing how therapeutic its creation becomes for Numan. The film's emotional centre, though, is the dynamic between Gary and his wife, Gemma.
Numan is an awkward sort, diagnosed with Asperger's, who credits wife Gemma with holding things together and being the sparkplug in his life. Their relationship is endearing. The music just gets in the way.
