All Critics (62) | Top Critics (34) | Fresh (39) | Rotten (23)

  • 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…
  • Instead of embracing the chaotic discovery that Steadman personifies, the film ends up being merely a paint-by-numbers.

    June 12, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/5 | 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…
  • Even if we don't quite get to know the man, the visionary violence of Steadman's acid pen emerges to vivid effect, partly though Kevin Richards's animations, and despite Depp's sometimes over-eager respect.

    June 1, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | 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.
