All Critics (21) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (17) | Rotten (4)

  • One is left with the feeling the trip was more in service of the film's narrative than a dream-fulfilling jaunt for Tom.

  • Documentaries about disabilities don't come any smarter or more touching than "Mission to Lars," a beautiful sibling road trip tale with a heavy-metal flourish.

  • In the particulars of a family quest film, viewers should see the universal. But in William Spicer and James Moore's documentary Mission to Lars, we instead get a whole lot of the specifics.

  • It will not teach you very much about either autism or Metallica, but you will leave the theater smiling.

  • This is no masterpiece but worth seeing for the way it treats its subject with unpatronising sympathy.

    Jun 8, 2012 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The peripheral interviews with the extended Spicer family are as compelling as the central quest; this is a film with rare honesty and nuance in a field that frequently feels queasy.
