Critic Reviews for Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

There's plenty of gossip to be found here, but there's also no shortage of humanity.

A nicely filled-out look at different eras, one secrecy-ridden and dedicated to the preservation of illusion, the other wide open and blasé about personal predilections.

By the time the film ends with Scotty's 91st birthday, we emerge feeling simultaneously soiled and invigorated.

More challenging and complex than a simple interview with a gossip, this documentary has almost an automatic pass to the nominations of the awards season. [Full review in Spanish]

'Scotty and the Secret History' is a fascinating portrait that neither lionizes nor judges its subject. It merely lets you take him for what he is.

The present-day footage is more compelling than any of the gossipy bits, which turn out to be the hook that pulls the film into more fraught and complex directions.
