Giuliani Time

Critics Consensus

Though he may be preaching to the choir, Keating provides plenty of evidence to back his claims about the former NYC mayor.

Movie Info

After September 11, 2001, when terrorist attacks leveled New York City's World Trade Center towers, mayor Rudolph Giuliani's public bravery and pluck in the midst of his city's greatest crisis made him a hero across the country and around the world. However, while Giuliani's actions after 9/11 made him seem like a champion, there has been significantly less attention paid to his record before the attacks. Documentary filmmaker Kevin Keating focuses on Giuliani's early years in politics, his often controversial and uncharitable stands on civil rights, social services, education, and law enforcement, and his political ambitions after leaving the mayor's office in Giuliani Time. Featuring newsreel footage and extensive interviews with political analysts and people who worked with Giuliani, the film offers an overview of the totality of the former mayor's career than has been absent in most recent profiles of his life.

Critic Reviews for Giuliani Time

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (12) | Fresh (22) | Rotten (4)

  • While Giuliani Time offers a wealth of important information that many might have long forgotten, its impact is diluted by its heavily biased nature and lack of balance.

  • With the former mayor currently enjoying one of the rare second acts in American political life, Giuliani Time does a strong job of reminding us what the first one was like.

  • Plays more like a rant, and a poorly focused one at that.

  • The trouble with Giuliani Time is that Keating, as a filmmaker, wants to give power to the people but in his every perception he takes it away from them.

  • I wanted more of those press conferences where he lashed at 'actually really jerky' questions before turning on his heel and exiting stage right. When Giuliani Time gives us a taste of this Rudy, it's mesmerizing.

  • To his credit and his film's benefit -- Keating also interviews Giuliani's friends and supporters, who praise his accomplishments (while acknowledging his occasional abrasiveness).
