Critic Reviews for The Ghost of Peter Sellers

All Critics (39) | Top Critics (8)

A documentary about the making of one of the worst movies of its time, and maybe all time.

June 27, 2020 | Full Review…

Movie junkies, rejoice. Director Peter Medak has made an instructive and nightmarishly funny documentary about how actor Peter Sellers drove him crazy and nearly trashed his career.

June 23, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

In the grand tradition of "Jodoworsky's Dune" and "Lost in La Mancha," the lighthearted behind-the-scenes documentary recounts a tortuous production and the fascinating ways in which it went awry from every possible direction.

Top Critic

Neither bitter nor maudlin, "The Ghost of Peter Sellers" is a movie about filmmaking and soul-searching, a tale of two Peters and maybe the worst of times for both.

June 23, 2020 | Full Review…

It's a revealing view of an industry of enormous personalities-and the indulgences that feed them.

May 26, 2020 | Full Review…

The "Ghost of Peter Sellers" seems to have worked well as therapy. Fifteen or 20 minutes shorter, it would have worked equally well as documentary filmmaking.
