Critic Reviews for George Michael: Freedom

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (2)

The documentary's heavy emphasis on the early-to-mid '90s has the marked feel of someone taking stock of their memories and curating their desired legacy. Which, of course, is the prerogative of an authorized, posthumous, hour-and-a-half documentary.

Essentially a glorified sizzle reel stringing together interviews and TV performances any serious fan is likely to have already seen, the documentary does little to deepen our understanding of Michael or his music.

October 20, 2017 | Full Review…

[Viewers are] familiar with the art of doing several things at the same time; in this case, wiggling the shoulders to a beat while padding down memory lane, totting up how many terrific songs Michael had written and performed.

June 28, 2018 | Full Review…

It was a full portrait of the artist, if not of the man.

December 26, 2017 | Full Review…

The end result is a documentary about Michael's life which seems hurried and incomplete.

December 19, 2017 | Full Review…

I tried to watch without prejudice, but in the end I felt I'd just been watching a supersized commercial.
