Critic Reviews for Kaiser: The Greatest Footballer Never to Play Football

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (4)

  • This is a gripping tale of dysfunction and self-delusion.

    April 24, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A story so impossible it plays like fiction, yet there's something enchanting about such an unlikely story, albeit one which loses some of its magic when examined so closely.

    June 4, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Certain scenes seem orchestrated just to elicit audience sympathy for Kaiser and they ring false. But by showing us how the myth is so much more enjoyable than the man, Myles helps us understand why the man created the myth in the first place.

    May 8, 2018 | Full Review…
  • This incredible story - too far-fetched to convince as a drama - is given a suitably brash and sassy treatment in this energetic and affectionate documentary.
