Critic Reviews for George Michael: Freedom

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (4)

  • 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.

  • [George Michael: Freedom] may have embraced hagiography at times, but it showcased a rare, compelling, self-effacing talent

  • 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.

  • So preposterous perhaps, but also honest and brilliant - the film, and the man.

  • [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.

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