Village Voice
Deconstructing Dad might be a messy biography, but it is a fascinating primer on Scott's work. Full Review
Frank Scheck
The Hollywood Reporter
The scattershot results, while admittedly providing plenty of fascinating details, doesn't quite do its subject justice. Full Review
Lou Lumenick
New York Post
The best evidence of this troubled man's genius is provided by ample samples of his music, much of which will be familiar to fans of Warner Bros. cartoons from the '30s and '40s. Full Review
Ronnie Scheib
Though the picture meanders somewhat in the absence of a clear throughline, the focus on Scott's music and electronic experimentation remains strong throughout, thanks to an eclectic roster of musicians and scholars and a generous sampling of his compositions. Full Review
Stephen Holden
The New York Times
Like "My Architect," Nathaniel Kahn's film about his father, Louis I. Kahn, this documentary is a son's attempt to forge a posthumous bond with an elusive parent. Full Review
