  • It's satisfying that the film exists, as an overdue tribute to an artist who can be appreciated even by those with limited patience for Thompson's posturing prose.

    October 29, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Meet Ralph Steadman and his nightmare visions of a world in pain, revealed in a mesmerizing documentary.

    June 5, 2014 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • [A] low-key, workmanlike documentary.

    May 30, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Paul struggles to contain Steadman's profligate energies in 90 minutes, and the waning presence of Johnny Depp, loitering between poor career choices to pull on a cigarillo and point at pictures, can't give it shape.

  • The film makes it clear that not only was Steadman perfect for Thompson's work (and a big part of his success), his work stands on its own artistically.

    May 29, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Giving an overlooked luminary his due is reason enough for "For No Good Reason."
