Metacritic Score

  • 63

    Slant Magazine

    Despite crafting a consistently engaging film, the director doesn't present the full scope of Sixto Rodriguez's life.

  • 60

    Boxoffice Magazine Ray Greene

    Like "Anvil," this is a crowd-pleasing triumph of the spirit, framed around a story so bizarre it sounds like an urban legend.

  • 50

    The Hollywood Reporter

    While all the interview subjects are enthusiastic, the overall lack of familiarity with Rodriquez's personal background and career collapse begin to drag.
