Critic Reviews for Working Class Boy

All Critics (7)

There's a matter-of-fact way that Barnes recounts stories of violence, alcoholism, abandonment and attempted sexual abuse that defined his youth that leave you reeling.

Because this is a movie about a rock star, not a book, we need a performance. Well, every song Barnes does for this film is worth the price of entry.

Never mind all the hits, never mind the brilliance as a singer of soul, blues and ballads, apart from rock; the man has enormous reserves of strength. That's so attractive on screen: he has survived.

...rips the top off the myth of the hard-boozing Aussie rocker to show the pain and trauma underneath.

A raw and uncomfortably honest self-portrait that is often terribly sad and moving...As far as tributes go, this definitely is a worthy one, driven by the values of survival, persistence and hope.

August 24, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Moving, confronting and yet, a distinct pleasure to watch, the fine Australian-made documentary Working Class Boy examines two disarmingly vivid subjects for the price of one.
