  • What we learn from the enjoyable punditry of siblings, art-world associates and former lovers is that the gorgeous provocateur was consumed with fame, and that everything and everybody was a means to that end.

  • Despite some moving contributions from family members, particularly Mapplethorpe's younger brother Edward, the film never really gets anywhere near its subject.

    August 8, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The film seeks to humanize an artist who'd been demonized, but not by ignoring his own demons.

  • 'He wanted to be a legend,' we are told again and again - and the filmmakers show just how single-mindedly he set about becoming one.

  • A comprehensive documentary portrait of the controversial photographer Robert Mapplethorpe that is hugely compelling throughout.

  • The most powerful way that Bailey and Barbato pay tribute to Mapplethorpe is by foregrounding his perspective.

  • A new HBO documentary on the late photographer is smart enough to realize that his power derived from his creepiness.
