Critic Reviews for The Last Shaman

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (6)

  • a fascinating and sometimes terrifying introduction to ayahuasca.

    May 22, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Often suffers from hazy storytelling, but its real difficulty for many viewers will be its protagonist, who isn't the most sympathetic proxy for Americans curious about the plant extract's suitability to treat depression.

    May 16, 2017 | Full Review…
  • It's possible to have doubts about ayahuasca (which, we learn, has been increasingly commercialized) and still find Mr. Freeman's resolve uplifting.

  • At once superficial and overblown, this documentary also often feels downright phony ...

  • The Last Shaman is often a fascinating portrait of an afflicted soul searching for answers but sometimes loses its way with its flashy presentation and complete abdication as to issues of class.

    October 31, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • You don't actually have to sample Ayahuasca, "the worst thing I've ever tasted," to smell the BS in this indulgent, unscientific quest for the latest fad cure
