Metacritic Score

  • 100

    Village Voice

    This is one of the most fully rounded, unsentimental portraits of an artist you'll ever see on film.

  • 80

    Time Out New York David Fear

    Mostly, you see a prolific artist going out playing—an unsentimental, salt-of-the-earth tribute that keeps the beat in a way that would make this extraordinary journeyman beam.

    Variety John Anderson

    What keeps Ain't in It for My Health from being a really satisfying portrait isn't a lack of access, but a lack of intimacy.
