    Spectacular song selection gives the docu an appropriate rock 'n' roll swagger and accompanying soundtrack would be a valuable overview of the bands championed by Rodney on the ROQ.
  2. Keeps its claws carefully retracted. That's probably for the best, since the documentary still leaves a bitter aftertaste.

    This absorbing documentary by George Hickenlooper (Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse) spends too much time on the celebrities in Bingenheimer's life for its analysis of fame and fandom to rise above the banal.
  4. Gentle Bingenheimer, who retreats from being ''figured out,'' is dubiously honored with unenlightened commentary by people hell-bent on doing so.
  5. 50
    Engaging, if ultimately wearisome.

    I wonder if there was a point in the making of this film at which Hickenlooper might have realized he picked the wrong subject. [May 2004, p. 18]

    The resulting portrait seems cruel at times, and Bingenheimer's little-boy-lost expression can be heartbreaking.
