All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3)

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.

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.

It is delightful and enlightening to witness how Sheeran carefully reveals the heart on his tattooed sleeve with every telling song on his latest hit album, Divide.

A personably impersonal "How I write" documentary about the prolific Ed Sheeran

August 15, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The die-hard fans will likely welcome Songwriter with open arms. The rest of us are left wanting just a little bit more.
