Critic Reviews for The Ghost of Peter Sellers

All Critics (43) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (41) | Rotten (2)

  • A useful way to consider both the brilliance of Sellers and the damage he wrought, as well as demonstrating the ludicrous leeway granted to celebrities and the ways that obvious warning signs of possible mental illness often went unheeded.

  • It's a really interesting spin on that subgenre of documentary about films that never got made... Because it's being directed by the person who tried to make the original movie, it adds an interesting layer.

    July 9, 2020 | Full Review…
  • A documentary about the making of one of the worst movies of its time, and maybe all time.

    June 27, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Movie junkies, rejoice. Director Peter Medak has made an instructive and nightmarishly funny documentary about how actor Peter Sellers drove him crazy and nearly trashed his career.

    June 23, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • In the grand tradition of "Jodoworsky's Dune" and "Lost in La Mancha," the lighthearted behind-the-scenes documentary recounts a tortuous production and the fascinating ways in which it went awry from every possible direction.

    June 23, 2020 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • Neither bitter nor maudlin, "The Ghost of Peter Sellers" is a movie about filmmaking and soul-searching, a tale of two Peters and maybe the worst of times for both.

    More moving than I anticipated. This is likely because Medak goes into this with more perspective and nuance than a lot of people would.
