Critic Reviews for George Michael: Freedom

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (7)

The film wanted for grit, and for context. Where we needed Johnny Marr, we got only James Corden. Where we could have done with a Simon Reynolds-style figure, we had to make do with a nodding Mark Ronson.

For all of Freedom: George Michael I just didn't know what I was watching.

October 23, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The documentary's heavy emphasis on the early-to-mid '90s has the marked feel of someone taking stock of their memories and curating their desired legacy. Which, of course, is the prerogative of an authorized, posthumous, hour-and-a-half documentary.

[George Michael: Freedom] may have embraced hagiography at times, but it showcased a rare, compelling, self-effacing talent

October 20, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

As a narrator, Michael was as you'd expect: smart, self-deprecating, with an underlying melancholy.

Essentially a glorified sizzle reel stringing together interviews and TV performances any serious fan is likely to have already seen, the documentary does little to deepen our understanding of Michael or his music.
