Sia's clumsy drama hits all the wrong notes...
April 16, 2021
Music is more than just a trainwreck of Sia's first frustrating attempt at a feature. It represents the depressing realization of just how misinformed the public still is about autism and how dangerous the misinformation in media is turning out to be.
March 5, 2021
Other than the performances, there is nothing redeeming about this complete mess.
March 4, 2021
Despite talented cast, drama is a misguided look at autism.
March 3, 2021
Despite being intercut with extremely Sia-esque singing and dancing vignettes, the story is all too familiar and the script very ropey. Hudson does what she can with a cliché.

There's so much that this movie gets wrong about the community that is searching to uplift.
February 25, 2021
A completely misguided mess.
February 24, 2021
Hudson goes to some emotionally raw and dark places, and really puts it out there in the song-and-dance department too.
February 22, 2021
Lacking any direction, Sia slips bits of each and every style in at random and fails to achieve any of them.
February 21, 2021
Sia isn't the first musician to try her hand at filmmaking. Music is barely a movie, however.
February 20, 2021
It's pitiful stuff.
February 19, 2021
The imagination and craftsmanship nearly compensate for the film's cliché characters and screenplay.
February 19, 2021
Four years ago, a musical genius shot a stinker. That she's promoting it so aggressively now suggests that she can't see, or smell, what's right under her nose.
February 19, 2021
The largest takeaway will never extend far past the misguided approach to this film from the get-go.
February 18, 2021
While Sia clearly got the casting right, she didn't fulfil her resolve to tell a story that is insightful, impactful and captivating.
February 18, 2021
When I look at Music, I don't see myself or any other autistic person I know. I see a plot device. I see a way to generate drama. I see the degrading way neurotypical people look at autistic people.
February 18, 2021
I can handle its poor pacing and stiff dialogue, but even doing research and writing an essay on the film's problematic elements pre-release were not enough to prepare me for how harmful Music is to autistic people.
February 17, 2021
There's passion for the project, which is refreshing, but for her big screen debut, Sia's storytelling focus is out of whack.
February 17, 2021
How nobody involved in this doomed fiasco simply said no at any - or every - stage is baffling. Fortunately, you can.
February 17, 2021
Released in such proximity to Sound of Metal, the astonishing insensitivity of Music seems all the more glaring.
