  • Fascinating because its subject is so influential and so deranged, a shambles because its filmmaker can't decide which approach to take and so takes all of them.

    January 27, 2011 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Murderer or not, the man is a musical genius, and Jayanti's film makes that abundantly, even tragically clear...

    December 17, 2010 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • It's disconcerting but strangely effective -- you get a sense of different aspects of the man, coexisting as one.

    December 2, 2010 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • A documentary examination of the genius, madness, arrogance and abject insecurity of rock music's most famous record producer.

  • Spector talking never fails to hold our interest, but other aspects of the film are less successful.

    August 19, 2010 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Spector's weirdness is pretty much off the charts, and Jayanti's approach confirms our worst hunches while failing to illuminate any of the more intricate nooks and crannies of this brilliant, troubled soul.

    He literally said he got the idea for his hair from Ben Wallace's afro, what more do I really have to say. Great documentary about one of the weirdest guy's in pop culture history.
