Critic Reviews for Glickman

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

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

Top Critic

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.

Arts Fuse

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.

The Playlist

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.
