Critic Reviews for Documentary Now! Season 3

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (7)

This episode, written by Meyers and Mulaney, fairly oozes with love of Broadway, love of Sondheim, and love of '70s weirdos with big sideburns. All to its benefit, to say the least.

Directors Rhys Thomas and Alex Buono nail the panoply of visual and rhythmic styles so thoroughly that if you didn't know what they were up to, you might actually buy the series' longtime conceit.

Top Critic

The strangest and most vital of tributes to an art form: ferociously attuned to detail, deeply enamored with its subject, and yet able to be critical. And it's insightful.

Season three has its ups and downs, but even its lesser entries are still amusingly idiosyncratic explorations of their source material.

The show's premise could quickly grow tiresome if done incorrectly, but with season three, Documentary Now! continues its winning streak.

One of the best, most clever, and intelligent comedies airing now that's tailor-made to anyone who loves movies.

For a satire, it still manages to hit those beats with dedication and is all the better for it. The comedy is just a bonus, and with this set of actors, it's an incredible start to the season.

Feb 21, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The fake documentary skewers the pretentiousness and earnestness of documentarians, as well as the fact that people are willing to utter the most ridiculous and self-incriminating statements when facing a camera.

Feb 28, 2019 | Full Review…

This show doesn't just mimic the form and topic of its source material but also its impact, the way that it's received. The show just keeps on nailing those subtler aspects of its satire.

Watching this season, it's easy to understand why the creators took three years to make this batch. Quality satire needs time to simmer
