Critic Reviews powered by Metacritic ™

The New York Times
Mr. Williams's quiet integrity trumps Mr. Kessler at every turn. Self-aware and articulate, with a modesty born from confidence, he persistently uses the film to extol - and demonstrate - the rewards of recovery. His conviction brings necessary moral weight to Paul Williams: Still Alive, which transcends caricature to emerge an impressive personal testament. Full Review
Andrew Schenker
Slant Magazine
The film too often undercuts its goals by indulging its director's need for self-affirmation at the expense of the movie's far more compelling central subject. Full Review
Bill Goodykoontz
Arizona Republic
What makes the movie so good is Williams' absolute refusal to play along. Full Review
Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News
Kessler has indeed made a film about a fame-chasing narcissist in desperate need of attention. But that has nothing to do with the guy we came to see. Full Review
Joe Leydon
Variety
An engrossing and satisfying picture, one that can be enjoyed even by people who have never before heard of its subject. Full Review
