  • As "Pavarotti" demonstrates, while the music was mesmerizing, so was the man.

  • Ron Howard's documentary doesn't just make you miss the singer. It makes you miss, of all things, a robust music industry.

  • Although Howard doesn't go in for a lot of musicological analysis of Pavarotti's genius, which would have enriched the presentation, he compensates by giving us an ample dose of the singing.

  • As a collection of candid and onstage footage, Howard's work is satisfying; yet as a story of an extraordinary life, Pavarotti is frustratingly diluted.

    Jun 6, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Clip after clip reinforces the image of Pavarotti as a robust man who loved life, loved food, loved wine, loved women - and loved himself, sometimes at the expense of others' feelings.

    Jun 6, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Initial impressions, however, can be deceptive, and Howard turns out to be a natural choice to direct the excellent "Pavarotti," a warm, emotional and completely involving film about the celebrated tenor.
