Critic Reviews for Project Greenlight Season 3

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (6)

It's painful watching Gulager attempt to play nicely with others. Of course, the "others" in question have a funny way of making working in a production office look about as appealing as a root canal.

"Greenlight" promises to be its own kind of educational video -- a "This is your brain on moviemaking" public-service announcement that, however entertaining the train wreck might be, is sure to go unheeded by those eager to climb aboard.

Again, the show is producing better television than cinema. Project Greenlight also continues to do a public service by documenting how studios bully wide-eyed visionaries, like pirates rocking the Good Ship Lollipop.

Maybe, as Matt Damon seemed to intuit, melancholia is power in John Gulager. Certainly he comes by it honestly.

Sep 6, 2019 | Full Review…

Truth be told, what drove this satisfying edition of "Greenlight" was not necessarily the on-set sniping and jockeying, but the portrait of a dogged director determined to bring a distinctive vision to the screen.

John Gulager... is easily the most intriguing personality in PG history. Considering PG's integrity-versus-earnings theme, he's the perfect auteur to play off the grabby Dimension execs.

Aware as I am of Greenlight's potential to harm unknown filmmakers, I could watch another 10 seasons of of Moore blowing his stack and threatening to fire the director.

Sep 6, 2019 | Full Review…

Feast does not look like the movie that will rescue Project Greenlight from infamy and cancellation. But the worse it gets, the better and more suspenseful it is to watch.

Sep 6, 2019 | Full Review…

The great irony is that the drama that erupts when these high-profile overachievers are put in the same room is far more entertaining than the movies they produce.
