Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Something of a whitewash job, it never begins to suggest the stubborn and sometimes shortsighted side to the inventor's character that led him, for example, first to fail to recognise the potential of his invention of the movie camera and projector. – Geoff Andrew, Time Out, Nov 21, 2016
