  • 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.

  • Dern and Stewart are outstanding, giving life to this tale.

    Apr 22, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Despite captivating performances from both Dern and Stewart, Jeremiah Terminator Leroy never manages to break out of the drudgery of a standard biopic.
