Critic Reviews for Running With Beto

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (12) | Fresh (21) | Rotten (2)

  • Naturally, O'Rourke is the star at the center of this movie, and he comes across well enough. Maybe a little too well: Even a handful of less flattering moments can't stop Running with Beto from feeling, at times, like a feature-length campaign promo.

    December 6, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Oddly,... "Running With Beto" is most compelling when O'Rourke isn't in it.

    May 30, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The most interesting voice is that of O'Rourke's 11-year-old son, Ulysses. Astute and intelligent, his point of view is the freshest and one of the most honest and it's from his perspective that the audience understands the true sacrifice of the race.

    May 29, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • What is probably most illuminating, mind you, is how the film (made by David Modigliani) delineates the partisanship that exists in the United States right now.

    May 28, 2019 | Full Review…
  • "Running With Beto" works best, in other words, when viewed as a marathon, not a sprint.

    May 28, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Running With Beto captures how much enthusiasm has been generated by those frustrated by both President Trump and Republican decision-making at various levels of government.
