Nuts!

Critics Consensus

Nuts! lives up to its title in the best way, offering a delightfully unorthodox look at a bizarre -- and largely unexplored -- chapter in American history.

  • Lane uses creative animation, archival footage and recordings - the good doctor apparently loved to be filmed - to tell an absolutely outrageous story of neediness, greed, delusion and gullibility.

  • It's a daring formal gamble on Lane's part, but it doesn't completely work.

  • It's flat-out exciting; really, how many documentaries can you say that about?

    July 21, 2016 | Rating: 4.5/5
  • I can't imagine anyone believing that goat glands transplanted into human reproductive organs could cure impotence, but as this lively, offbeat documentary proves, plenty of Americans did.

  • "NUTS!" starts out as one kind of character study and turns into a very different one. The gullible believe in miracles, fortunes are built and lost, and an entire generation is deliberately misled.

    July 14, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • This savvy director plays with history and viewers' conceptions of traditional documentary filmmaking, expounding in a way upon Stephen Colbert's concept of "truthiness."
