Hampered by limited video of Jobriath, the film lacks a sense of him or his music.
April 29, 2014
A cubist portrait of an unknowable man and a dramatic whodunit about an artist-victim who died by a thousand cuts.
January 31, 2014
Documentary maker Kieran Turner attempts to rehabilitate Jobriath's reputation, presenting him as a gifted musician and a gay-rights pioneer.

A long-forgotten, envelope-pushing figure of 1970s rock will be hard to forget again after Jobriath A.D.
January 31, 2014
Eye-opener introduces a glam rocker who should be a better known part of pop history.
