  • It's an anti-romantic biography about a great artist, one whose central themes are basic, but whose energy and execution is irresistible. show more

  • Ponderously paced and mostly flat in its dramatic effect, this wooden period piece is slow going indeed. show more

  • Garrett’s performance lacks any nuance or fire. When he’s playing, he’s a powerhouse. When he’s talking, he’s a half-presence with a vaguely Tommy Wiseau-esque accent, and sleepy eyes to match. show more
