Critic Reviews for Mad to Be Normal

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (14) | Rotten (9)

  • There's plenty of jazzy paisley shirts, flamboyant velvet suits and on-the-nose music cues to denote its psychedelic 1960s setting, but these elements do little to soften Laing's eye-raisingly invasive and possibly inappropriate approach to his patients.

    April 9, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • It's elevated above bog-standard biopic fare by the performances.

    April 7, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • David Tennant is on pugnacious, mercurial and beady-eyed form in this very interesting and absorbing film.

    April 7, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Mad to Be Normal boils a fascinating subject down into a slightly clunky, simplistic bio-drama.

    April 3, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Tennant's performance is strong, and he gives energy to a script that jolts in different directions looking for focus.

    April 3, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • There's an almost complete absence of narrative progression, or anything that helps you to understand why this needed to be a feature film and not, say, a radio play or a magazine longread.
