A riveting tale of a onetime vivacious personality, described by those who knew her as "stunning," "lovely," and "very well liked," but who nevertheless died alone, friendless and seemingly missed by nobody. Full Review

Dreams of a Life succeeds in making its point about the unkowability of the people in our lives, but there isn't quite enough substance here to fully sustain the film. Full Review
Eric Kohn
Dreams of a Life unintentionally amounts to a mean-spirited snooze. Full Review
John DeFore
The Hollywood Reporter
Carol Morley's sadly fascinating Dreams of a Life, which plays like a more artful cousin to TV's true-crime documentaries, slowly assembles a portrait of Vincent, unfolding in a way that should earn fans in its niche theatrical run. Full Review

Time Out New York
Director Morley has at least restored something of a soul to her subject. Full Review
