Critic Reviews for The Ecstasy of Wilko Johnson

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (10)

  • Johnson is a modern-day renaissance man who'll be quoting William Blake one moment and belting out some R&B with Roger Daltrey the next.

    Jul 23, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Wilko is irrepressibly energetic, holding forth on life, love, the universe and above all the prospect of death.

    Jul 16, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Part biopic, part arty collage film, part scenic ramble through the great guitarist's synaptic labyrinth.

    Jul 13, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • This is a moving portrait of a remarkable man, which is at its most effective when it just lets him speak.

    Apr 5, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It's a strange, thought-provoking tale.

    Nov 21, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • For fans of a type of extended visual spirituality threaded with a philosophy of mild nihilism and hope, it is recommended.
