Critic Reviews for Glickman

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (1)

  • Not many documentaries-not many, certainly, devoted to sports figures-can claim to bring their subjects to life so fully.

  • Not just an affectionate portrait of a gifted athlete-turned-groundbreaking sportscaster, the film is also a fond remembrance of life in New York City from the 1930s through the '70s.

    August 15, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • As James Freedman's doc demonstrates, Glickman was the first true voice of the fan, inventing a whole new language for our 24/7 sports-mad culture on then-upstart HBO in the 1970s.

    June 8, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The rousing story of Marty Glickman,who invented,in the 1940s and 1950s, the modern style of sports broadcasting.

    September 25, 2013 | Rating: 3 stars | Full Review…
  • Marty Glickman was simply being the best Marty Glickman he could be. For many he wasn't just the best Marty Glickman he was simply: the best.

    August 28, 2013 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • The documentary hews to a conventional structure, its own story chronological and in some instances, perfunctory, using archival voiceover from Glickman (who died in 2001) as well as bits of his announcing.

    August 27, 2013 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…
