Critic Reviews for Sammy Davis, Jr.: I've Gotta Be Me
"I've Gotta Be Me" showcases Davis's vast talents, but it also shines a light on his need for acceptance, his inability to curb indulgences, the groundbreaking aspects of his career and his hunger for applause.
[Sam] Pollard tell Davis' tale with sympathy and performance clips that convey the breadth of his talent.
Consistently describes an ambitious talent always reaching for the top, but also a man plagued by insecurity, who remained sadly unsure of his own value.
A documentary about the first black man to sleep in the White House - no, not Obama - but rather Sammy Davis Jr. A simultaneous chronicle of a turbulent era, and memory lane excursion through the complex and complicated life of the entertainment legend.
A good documentary will prompt a deep dive into the work of the film's subject, and Pollard's film definitely qualifies.
