All Critics (16) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (6)

  • What ends up on screen is less a story than a string of depressing, offensive or depressingly offensive scenes.

  • Somehow Mr. Reid has an ability to push so far into the depths of stupidity that he breaks out the other side, making you laugh in spite of yourself.

    September 15, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Furmanski's melancholy, involving documentary ultimately registers as a haunting character study about the sad man behind the filthy music.

  • So-so contemporary shows and cantankerous arguments are favored over in-depth looks at Reid's legacy.

  • Although its subject is never less than captivating, Jonathan Furmanski's film is frustratingly unfocused, a scattershot collection of candid footage and biographical information. Thankfully, Blowfly's world is weird as promised.

    September 13, 2011 | Full Review…
  • Hanging out with a 1970s cult figure of raunchy R&B "party records" is less fun than one would expect in The Weird World of Blowfly.
