Critic Reviews for George Best: All by Himself

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (15) | Rotten (3)

  • Best's fame had percolated to the farthest corners of consciousness, beyond soccer to stardom. And that was his curse, and his blessing.

  • Trundles out the same old ideas, without anything fresh in the way of context or perspective.

    February 23, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Gordon's documentary is punctuated with redtop headlines, as if the Daily Bilge and Sunday Schmooze were the authorities to trust on matters of fallen soccer princes.

    February 23, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • This is an illuminating and moving film which shows Best at his seediest and most pathetic but never loses sight of the brilliance that made the homesick kid from Belfast into football's first superstar.

    February 22, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A harrowing insight into the nature of celebrity.

    February 21, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Since the Oscar-winning success of Amy, the bar for biographical documentaries has been set high. Daniel Gordon's portrait of George Best clears it by a mile.
