REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..this is a special one..”
by Phil Brown [Collider]
“..the film sets the record straight and allows Slim himself to confess that his tales are ones of warning, not how-to guides, and for that alone it is a story worth watching..”
by Jordan M. Smith [Ioncinema]
“..a labor of love biodoc that nonetheless offers a warts-and-all evaluation of its subject..”
by Joe Leydon [Variety]
