Metacritic Score

  • 80

    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    A tour de force of archival research and dogged interviewing, and the portrait it presents is remarkably complete.

  • 80

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    What is most involving about Gould is the extraordinary way he played.

  • 70

    NPR Mark Jenkins

    A fine overview, with enough new material to please Gould buffs. But the film fails to demonstrate that conventional biography is the best path to its subject's inner life.
