      David Stratton The Australian Gudinski comes across as an amiable, endlessly energetic and passionate man who loved not only the music but the musicians who created that music. Rated: 3.5/5 Sep 8, 2023 Full Review John McDonald Australian Financial Review When six out of ten tracks were banned by the Broadcasting authority because of sex and drug references, Gudinski knew this was brilliant publicity. It meant fans simply had to buy the record. Sep 17, 2023 Full Review Jim Schembri jimschembri.com The bumpy, brilliant life of the most daring and visionary producer to ever grace the Australian music scene gets the detailed cross-section it warrants in an excellent, absorbing feature-length bio-documentary...serves as a very fitting tribute. Rated: 4/5 Sep 1, 2023 Full Review David Griffiths Subculture Entertainment It could have expanded on some areas but this is going to become one of the most important documentaries on the Australian music industry. Rated: 4/5 Aug 31, 2023 Full Review Leigh Paatsch Herald Sun (Australia) While the doco could have used a few judicious trims here and there, those with a real passion for our rich local music history will wish the whole thing went even longer. Rated: 3/5 Aug 31, 2023 Full Review Amelia Berry Flicks (AU, NZ, UK) At its heart, a story of Australian ingenuity - a lone determined figure who turned a culture obsessed with “Imported cars. Imported clothes. Imported music” into one that celebrated homegrown talent. Aug 24, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
