Critic Reviews for Roman Polanski: A Film Memoir

All Critics (11) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (1)

  • [This doc] consists of the director's honest, contrite but always moving and thoughtful analysis of how fate channels the best and worst sides of our nature.

    June 8, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Roman Polanski: A Film Memoir is a rare opportunity to hear a master filmmaker speak about his life. Both his haters and fans will agree, it is a highly watchable documentary. But don't expect either group to feel they have heard the whole story.

    November 10, 2013 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • Polanski sure knows how to spin a yarn, whether it's with words or film.

    March 17, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • There's no doubt Polanski is a major artist, and his fans will probably get a lot out of his recollections, but don't expect any rigorous attention to the ethics of documentary-making. This is a personal exercise in public atonement.

    February 28, 2013 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • An intimate and compelling, albeit sympathetic, portrait of this filmmaking legend, whose often tragedy tinged real life story eclipses his extraordinary onscreen work.

    February 22, 2013 | Full Review…
  • What rises to the surface and sparkles are Polanski's gifts as a raconteur, his fierce intelligence and his guile.
