Critic Reviews for You Don't Know Jack

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (17) | Fresh (20) | Rotten (4)

  • After spending more than two increasingly dispiriting hours with Pacino's raspy eccentric, I still didn't know a lot more about Kevorkian than I had going in.

  • Even as stars Al Pacino, Susan Sarandon and Brenda Vaccaro dim their wattage with clumsy Michigan accents, bad wigs and dowdy clothes, a compelling story about Kevorkian's advocacy for euthanasia emerges.

    August 10, 2020 | Full Review…
  • There are many, many haunting scenes in HBO's docudrama You Don't Know Jack.

    August 10, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Should make for a fascinating and nicely tangled story. The trouble was that the programme turned it into a straight fight between goodies and baddies.

    August 10, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Kevorkian boasts that he can "go weeks without food, like Gandhi." Pacino, by contrast, clearly recognizes the big, juicy meal laid out in front of him by this peculiar character, and it's a pleasure watching him greedily consume it.

    August 10, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Pacino spends most of the two-plus hours of "Jack" being a distraction in his own movie.
