Critic Reviews for The Cult of JT LeRoy

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (5)

  • Sturm draws on a rich array of material to assemble a first documentary feature that's fascinating on numerous levels.

    December 8, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Sturm's The Cult of JT LeRoy offers a sober yet somewhat punch-drunk reminder of what it felt like when the local literary wunderkind with a disturbingly tragic past was shown to possess an even more disturbingly tragic future.

  • It will leave you wondering how deeply what you know is conditioned by what you want to know.

    August 25, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Sturm is an efficient storyteller, and she has assembled a cast of informative, engaging interviewees -- writers, agents, filmmakers -- whose stories convincingly bear out her view of Albert as a con artist who preyed on people's emotions.

    March 13, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The story of JT LeRoy, a wunderkind writer who proved to be a hoax persona fashioned by Laura Albert, capitalized on [America's] need to weep and, simultaneously, encapsulated the trend.
