Critic Reviews for Wheeler

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

In piecing these elements into a narrative, Dorff and co-screenwriter Ross forgot that satisfying stories tend to place some disappointment and conflict between their heroes and success.

Dang if [Dorff] doesn't make this simple yet sincere saga hit more than a few high notes.

February 3, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

This faux documentary about a country music singer-songwriter plays like a long-distance ego trip.

A terrific film that deserves far more attention than its low-profile release is likely to receive.

February 2, 2017 | Full Review…

The on screen proceedings drop hints about Dorff himself, of celebrityhood versus anonymity that come with the ambivalence of fame. And a possibly personal closeted desire to slip into another person's random skin and out of the limelight, for a change.

Stephen Dorff makes Wheeler quite real. His great performance seals the deal.
