Critic Reviews for Howard
I thought [director] Don Hahn did a beautiful job. You could really feel his affection for Howard. It's a moving and richly layered portrait.
Hahn ... performs a delicate balancing act as he puts audio interviews over old photos, archive footage, and occasional animations.
Mostly it will just make you hungry to revisit Ashman's work. That's perhaps not the intended result of this fond tribute/merely serviceable survey of a too-short career - but it's not necessarily a bad one.
If Hahn's filmmaking struggles to replicate the whimsical creativity of his subject, Ashman's genius shines through anyway.
There's little here that couldn't be divined from Ashman's Wikipedia article and it seems a shame that someone responsible for four such extraordinary movies should be given such an unremarkable cinematic biography.
