Critic Reviews for Sinatra: All or Nothing at All Season 1

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (11)

The exhaustive but thoroughly enjoyable four-hour film... is a deep dive into the life, loves, and - most stunningly - the music of the hero of Hoboken, N.J., who would have turned 100 this year.

Apr 6, 2015 | Full Review…

New and previous reminiscences are interwoven with archival footage to present an affectionate although not unsparing portrait of the man whom many consider to be the greatest crooner of all time.

Top Critic

With impressive clips and first-rate commentators like Hamill, Jonathan Schwartz, Terry Teachout and John Lahr, Gibney has explained why, like him or not, Sinatra mattered so much.

What's best here are those clips, and songs. Even better, the closing minutes.

Sinatra: All or Nothing at All is a engrossing look at a man who may have been down at times but never out.

Apr 7, 2015 | Full Review…

All or Nothing at All draws from hours of Sinatra interviews and performances, as well as others' reminiscences, for a piece that's particularly effective in showing the singer as a young striver from New Jersey.

Apr 6, 2015 | Full Review…

Sacrificing depth for breadth, Sinatra: All or Nothing at All is a bloated exploration of one of the 20th century's musical greats.

Apr 4, 2015 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

While we'll still have to wait for the cinematic portrait he deserves, the four-hour plus documentary "Sinatra: All Or Nothing At All" lives up to its title - this is everything you would ever want to know about the singer and then some.

Apr 3, 2015 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Gibney delivers a beautiful follow-up, a four-hour examination of the life of Frank Sinatra, which proves to be as mesmerising as it is flavourful.

Oct 4, 2016 | Full Review…

If all the people who inhabit the person of Francis Albert Sinatra never cohere into one, perhaps that's not a bad thing; it keeps you from making up your mind.
