      G. Allen Johnson San Francisco Chronicle "That Summer" leaves me with Beale fatigue. It would seem to appeal to "Grey Gardens" completists only. Rated: 1/4 Jul 5, 2018 Full Review Tara Brady Irish Times At just 80 minutes, That Summer is probably one for enthusiasts only, but existing fans will find plenty to savour. Rated: 3/5 Jun 8, 2018 Full Review Michael Brooke Sight & Sound Its value lies less in its resurrection of footage long thought vanished than in the way that it has been co-opted, with remarkably little overt editorial interference, into an essay on the impermanence, persistence and importance of memory. Jun 7, 2018 Full Review Andrew Murray The Upcoming Viewers don't need to have seen Grey Gardens to appreciate this picture, but after seeing it they'll most likely want to spend more time with the Beales. Rated: 4/5 Feb 2, 2021 Full Review David Bax Battleship Pretension Heavy as it may sound, That Summer is mostly a fun 80 minutes spent in the company of charming characters. Dec 10, 2020 Full Review Steven Prokopy Third Coast Review That Summer is more a well-edited curiosity than a fully realized documentary, but in this case, it works because the subjects are so captivating and bizarre.
