Critic Reviews for The Pulitzer at 100

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

It's as if filmmaker Kirk Simon entered into the project without a carefully thought-out agenda, instead opting for more of a free-form approach that constantly undercuts its effectiveness.

Far too broad to be deep in any respect, the lightweight documentary benefits from access to plenty of top-shelf interviewees but plays like a back-patting muddle.

Plays as if the Pulitzers were presenting an award to themselves.

It's nice to see everyone, but the analysis never runs too deep ...

July 19, 2017 | Full Review…

Lightweight and self-congratulatory, but with talent like this, at least it is entertaining.

An intellectually satisfying tapestry of what is the literary world's most iconic prize.
