Critic Reviews for Personal Best

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (1)

Sprinting looks like a brutal business: runners pushing themselves to the limits of pain and endurance, day in day out, year in year out - only to win or lose by hundredths of a second.

Top Critic

The portraits could have done with a little more intimacy and drama, but the richly ambient score and sound design, over brooding shots of London's tower blocks, knit it hypnotically together, and the photography's splendid.

Daily Telegraph (UK)

How nice to see a pre-Olympics project so willing to cut through follow-your-dream guff.

London Evening Standard

Filmed over four years this documentary captures the blood, sweat and ceaseless commitment needed to compete at the highest levels of a sport.

Daily Express (UK)

At best this is strictly bronze medal material.

The Sun (UK)

Until the Olympics happen, the final chapters to these athletes' stories is missing. So we get the pain, but little of the gain.
