  • Whether a veiled ad for Sheeran's discography, MacBooks (no obscured logos here) or Apple Music itself, this Apple Music-exclusive documentary still inspires.

  • Don't Look Back it isn't, but Songwriter - a documentary about Ed Sheeran co-produced by Apple Music and featuring a boatload of Apple products - is an interesting window into the creation of a modern pop behemoth all the same.

    August 15, 2018 | Full Review…
  • ... Songwriter ends up being frustratingly enjoyable. Neither the filmmaker nor the subject respond to probing attacks on the artist's inoffensiveness, nor do they fuel any further conversation about anything other than Ed Sheeran's music.

    February 28, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • For better or worse, it's the kind of feature one can imagine being presented on one side of a DualDisc album edition, if only Sheeran's primary demographic still consumed physical media.

  • Banal adventures of a bland superstar.

    February 24, 2018 | Full Review…
  • There is no romantic tragedy, nor even a visible grit in the oyster: just a dogged, talented, unassuming professional showing us that it's about the perspiration, not just the inspiration.
