Critic Reviews for The Ghost of Peter Sellers

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

  • The director has made a documentary that's both a mea culpa for his role in a botched enterprise that left no one looking good and an affecting attempt to define a life's turning point.

  • The Ghost of Peter Sellers beautifully allows the guilt-ridden director to exorcise his demons; against himself, against Sellers and against the film itself, within this surprisingly eloquent contemplation of a well-intentioned misfire.

    May 22, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Deeply entertaining and profoundly moving, The Ghost of Peter Sellers offers a slice of forgotten movie history that, it turns out, is well worth remembering.

  • Through the making and release of The Ghost of Peter Sellers, a burden is finally lifted for Ghost in the Noonday Sun director Peter Medak.

  • Many times throughout the documentary, Medak's friends and associated ask him why he's making this film. Like those tragic moments in our lives, we have to re-live it and confront it in order to move on with life.
