Val | Ratings & Reviews

"It's sentimental, as obscuring as it is revealing, occasionally indulgent, offhandedly brilliant in spots and filled with oddball detours and self-regarding tangents."

Rolling StoneRolling Stone

"It's hard to tell if the footage is being presented in the name of warts-and-all honesty or because Kilmer believes the clips vindicate him."

"Discretion, I'm glad to report, is not the better part of Val. Watching this documentary is like having Dorian Gray give you a guided tour of his attic."

The New YorkerThe New Yorker

"There's an unresolved tension at play between the film's conscious construction and Kilmer's desire to present his unvarnished truth."

A.V. ClubA.V. Club

"With a combination of wit, sincerity, self-awareness, and the narcissism that is both a requirement and a pitfall of his profession, Kilmer succeeds in explaining himself, or at least convincing us that we never really knew him before."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"Rewardingly unconventional."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"This heartfelt portrait... captures Kilmer's talent, intelligence, and gift for self-sabotage."


"A compelling self-portrait of a complicated star."

Little White LiesLittle White Lies

"Unique and unexpectedly moving..."

Herald SunHerald Sun

"If one chooses to be cynical about it, there's a bit of career rehab at play as it attempts to soften his perceived rough edges. But for everyone else, Val is a rewarding experience..."


"Undoubtedly a canny meditation on the vagaries of fame, but it feels more intimate and essential than that..."

Entertainment WeeklyEntertainment Weekly

"The moral of Val may be that Kilmer is his own worst enemy, an idea that gives the film its diffused power..."


"It's vibrant, quick, and alive..."
