Kelly's film is largely entertaining, set in a world where everyone is playing someone else.

While technically a supporting character, Dern often steals the show, relishing the opportunity to shift between a trio of personalities to darkly comic effect. That's appropriate in a movie all about the perils of seeking attention.

Top Critic

For a movie about what's going on under the elaborately staged surface, it's pretty much all surface, right down to its shallow observations about gender fluidity, queer identity and the creative freedom of the alternate persona.

It's truly fascinating to witness Stewart first perform as the naive, likable Knoop, and the as the affected, aloof LeRoy.

[F]or a subject known for such personality, this biopic (of sorts) struggles to find one of its own.
