“..this histrionic ventriloquism (the worst offenders: Marisa Tomei, Uma Thurman) turns Monroe's life into The Vagina Monologues, cheapening the legend rather than illuminating her..”
by Melissa Anderson [Village Voice]
Review rate : A

“..magical documentary..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
“..inventive but sometimes pretentious, a proud party of Monroe mania that we're all but ordered to admire..”
by David DeWitt [NY Times]
“..although it promises more than it delivers, this doc provides a slick overview of the Marilyn mystique..”
by Stephen Farber [Hollywood Reporter]
“..a sort of bad-acting parade, interrupted by welcome film clips and rarely seen footage..”

by Moira MacDonald [Seattle Times]
