Critic Reviews for Searching For Sheela

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (5)

  • Searching for Sheela is a minor companion piece to the mesmerizing Wild Wild Country.

    April 22, 2021 | Full Review…
  • In its search for Sheela Birnstiel, the documentary doesn't get anywhere. In the workmanlike and uncritical assembly of footage, there is no indication that the film ever intended to.

    May 3, 2021 | Full Review…
  • Empty and fawning, Searching for Sheela offers as much insight into Ma Anand Sheela as might be gleaned by staring at a wall for its entire runtime.

    May 3, 2021 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • At best, Searching For Sheela is a behind-the-scenes episode of the makeover of a 70-year-old lady with a colourful past, and also the promotional tour of a book.

    May 3, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • While the subject is fascinating, Searching for Sheela is a problematic film, likely to give a bad name to journalism as it ignores every journalistic standard for even-handedness.

    April 28, 2021 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • A bland apologia for an eventful, error-strewn life that has seen more than its share of ups and downs and has for decades been surrounded by mystery.

    April 23, 2021 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
