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.
"I Gotta Be Me" pays homage to a consummate entertainer, who suffered greatly for being black and who chose to be Jewish to suffer more.
Thanks to Pollard's solid, engaging movie, the man's many past contributions to our here and now are laid out for all to see, and see them you should.
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.
