  • But what's best about the documentary is all that Obama sun. It's hard to come by these days, even in retrospect.

  • Though it goes adrift at times, the film lands at a moment when you may need some uplift and provides a welcome reminder of what executive dignity looks like.

  • At times [it] comes close to sounding like a Democratic Party promotional video, especially in the late stretches, but Porter is a talented director who knows every picture tells a story, and boy does Pete Souza have a story to tell.

  • A flawed but galvanizing documentary...

  • "The Way I See It" feels like it could carry on being relevant to audiences for decades to come.

  • Simply in terms of presenting a draft of history through his earlier work and scalding commentary via his more recent endeavors, Souza's aim has been true.
