  • The movie was produced by Jen Gatien, its subject's daughter, so its agenda should be fairly obvious. But it's an engrossing story nonetheless.

  • Depending on your age, Limelight could make you nostalgic for those bad old days - and sort of glad you'll never be able to relive them.

  • Watching Limelight, about the rise and politically engineered fall of onetime Manhattan nightclub kingpin Peter Gatien, is like looking through a family album: If you're in the family, you might be interested.

  • Gatien's story is worth telling. Which makes it all the more unfortunate that director Billy Corben presents it in such a methodical fashion.

    September 23, 2011 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Limelight offers a few moderately enlightening interviews and a lot of candy-colored lights.

  • Transporting as it is, this doc leaves a bad taste in your mouth, if just for the ill will it drudges up.
