A.O. Scott
The New York Times
One of the funniest, and most telling, films of the year. The filmmakers call "Kid" a documentary, but the movie is one of the unusual kind that is firmly lodged inside the subject's perspective. Full Review
David Edelstein
A breezy hoot, and it's gorgeous to look at. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
Has to be one of the must-see films for any student of Hollywood fame and infamy. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
A smart, funny and strangely touching film. Full Review
Keith Phipps
The Onion (A.V. Club)
Evans has as distinctive an American voice as Mark Twain or Vin Scully, and the directors wisely let him do the talking. Full Review
