Critic Reviews for I Am Michael
Franco's fantastic here. He gives a fieriness to Michael as a gay advocate, then seamlessly slides into borderline madness as he starts accepting that the "voice" he hears is God's.
Despite some wooden line readings, Franco gives himself fully to the challenge of rendering Glatze with truth and resolve.
Mr. Franco broods and puzzles and vacillates. But he often seems abandoned by a director whose approach is so noncommittal and dramatically limp that it strands the actor, and his character, in a bland purgatory of conflicting motivations.
A soberly stylish, impressively non-judgmental portrait of a controversial real-life case of transformation.
Audience Reviews for I Am Michael
A remarkably sympathetic and nuanced character study about an idealist LGBT activist who slowly becomes a pathetic shadow of himself due to fear and religion, and it is beautiful to see how the film never vilifies him, which would have been actually quite easy.
