Critic Reviews for Miss Sharon Jones!

All Critics (52) | Top Critics (17)

  • The film's real success lies in having Jones as its primary subject, and that's because she's a wickedly funny, fierce, phenomenal force of nature, a positive, vivacious character whose generosity and charisma touches every single person.

  • "You think you've seen something/ Lord, I've just begun," Sharon Jones sings, and you don't doubt her for a second.

  • Initially dismissed by a record exec as "too black, too short, too old," to succeed, dynamic R&B powerhouse Sharon Jones wasn't about to let that, or anything else, stop her.

  • We don't learn enough about Jones away from her cancer. And because Jones is not especially insightful about her disease (not many people could be), we don't learn enough about her within it, either.

  • What makes "Miss Sharon Jones" most captivating is how its subject, in spite of hardship, remains a magnetic stage presence.

  • Yes, cancer sucks. But frankly, there's nothing distinctive about this documentary, even though it's about a very distinctive person.
