  • The film casts Spector in a sympathetic light. You can't help feeling sorry for the tormented genius. show more

  • What makes "Ecstasy" essential viewing for any pop-music fan and any student of celebrity pathology is the interview itself.

  • Makes fascinating viewing despite its clumsy bombast. show more
