      Nick Allen While the doc might prove that [Foster's] approach worked, it's progressively tedious to revisit these hits through such a thick air of self-affirmation. Rated: 1.5/4 Jul 3, 2020 Full Review Owen Gleiberman Variety A once-over-lightly portrait that teeters between offering a fascinating close-up look at how the sausage of pop gets made and being a kind of infomercial. Sep 19, 2019 Full Review Brad Wheeler Globe and Mail Despite the film's laudatory tone, a portrait of Foster is competently painted by the veteran documentarian Avrich. Rated: 3/4 Sep 8, 2019 Full Review Mara Reinstein Billboard Arrogance and a self-congratulatory attitude permeates throughout David Foster: Off the Record, rendering the documentary almost impossible to glean any insight… Jan 26, 2024 Full Review CJ Johnson Film Mafia He's a self-confessed problematic individual, which the film somewhat embraces, but it's best enjoyed as a testament to an astonishing career. Rated: 3/5 Aug 13, 2020 Full Review Kyle Smith National Review Foster created the easiest of easy listening. Still, it takes an iron fist to generate so much fluff, as we learn in the amusingly frank documentary David Foster: Off the Record. Jul 23, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

      StephenPaul C The greatest 01 hour: and 37 minutes of real musical footage!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Self-serving garbage. I would have respected Foster much more if I just saw his resume and never watched the documentary. Bleachhh. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Classic producer the end of it, you might think he's Jesus, but alas, he just signs ACTUAL artists. Total snore fest. If you want to sleep, watch the Golf Channel. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member I enjoyed this documentary of a man who produced and or co-wrote so many great songs, with so many great artists. He's a flawed individual with an immense ego, but I appreciated that he acknowledged and owned up to these flaws in the documentary. He truly is one of the greatest producers of all-time. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member He's got an ego, that's for sure. But I do own a lot of his records. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Five stars for the documentary but 2 stars for his arrogance and utter douchebaggery. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 07/08/20 Full Review Read all reviews
