REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..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]
“..well-executed archival footage and animated imagery compensate for some lackluster photographed talking heads..”
by Anthony Kaufman [Screen International]
