      Neil Genzlinger New York Times The film can't resist trying to turn Mr. Guccione into a tragic figure, an image that will have fewer buyers than his flagship magazine does today. Nov 11, 2013 Full Review Nancy DeWolf Smith Wall Street Journal There are some wonderful moments in this film by Barry Avrich. Nov 8, 2013 Full Review Dennis Harvey Variety Feels like a somewhat superficial, "authorized" bio that nonetheless holds attention via its surfeit of archival materials and input from diverse interviewees. Oct 2, 2013 Full Review John Fink The Film Stage Engaging, entertaining and passionately told, Avrich has created an excellent behind-the-man documentary. Rated: B+ Jun 27, 2016 Full Review Nathalie Atkinson National Post A remarkably incurious feature length documentary, it takes everything Guccione's friends, family and associates have to say at him at face value. Rated: 1.5/4 Sep 20, 2013 Full Review Drew Taylor The Playlist This is a documentary about the totemic power of Bob Guccione and how he tried to change the world, one pubic hair at a time. Rated: B+ Sep 9, 2013 Full Review Read all reviews

      Scott W Watched about half . Basically a good A and E biography . Not a movie really ... Rated 3 out of 5 stars 12/08/16 Full Review Audience Member Fascinating look at a larger than life character who lived a larger than life life... Might have been nice to delve a tough deeper, but you got a nice overview. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews
