Hollywoodland | Ratings & Reviews

"First-time scripter Paul Bernbaum's framing story, designed to stir up suspicion that George Reeves was a murder victim rather than a suicide, unfortunately proves far less intriguing than does the melancholy tale of a limited actor reaching the end of the line during a transitional period in Hollywood..."

Christchurch PressChristchurch Press

"Far from seamless, but it is genuinely haunting..."
