Critic Reviews for Method to the Madness of Jerry Lewis
Whatever Method leaves out, most of what it includes is worth a look.
The old clips are still a hoot, but there's a limit to how much compressed air a viewer can take, listening to a bunch of old men talk about how funny their friend was.
Barson has made a doc too narrow in scope, with about as much substance as a meringue pie in the face.
The documentary's camera captures the lensmen from an angle designed to make a tiny swarm of shutterbugs appear like a teeming plague, and you quickly begin to distrust the film's perspective in the most literal sense.
The weakness of this documentary is that it doesn't give us Mr. Lewis, warts and all.
