Critic Reviews for Oliver Sacks: His Own Life

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (16)

  • "Oliver Sacks: His Own Life" is a moving portrait of a man taking deep stock of his life with great satisfaction and verve.

    September 25, 2020 | Full Review…
  • While the movie steers around the details of how post-fame Sacks became something of a brand, it beautifully presents a portrait of his compassion and bravery.

    September 23, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Part of the teasing mystery of "Oliver Sacks: His Own Life" is that the movie, like Sacks himself, refuses to pin its subject down to anything as earthly as a diagnosis, because that would reduce him.

    October 2, 2019 | Full Review…
  • One of the surprising and moving lessons of this revealing film is how often the most gifted people are unappreciated.

    September 11, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A fascinating overview of the life and work of a Renaissance Man.

    October 26, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • Above all, the film is affecting, not so much for what you learn, but because it's a pleasure to share Sacks' company -- the slow, deliberate pace of his speech, his humility, his mischief, curiosity and wonder.
