Even grumpy A.O. Scott gushes:
A nearly flawless piece of popular art, as well as one of the most persuasive portraits of an artist ever committed to film. It provides the kind of deep, transporting pleasure, at once simple and sophisticated, that movies at their best have always promised.Courtney made lots of fun of me for being so excited to see this thing. But it's really that good.
