Reviews: Judy (2019)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: If Goold’s film feels a little small for its outsize subject, Zellweger’s performance is not contained nor restrained by it. She’s a marvel and her “Judy” will inspire both cheers and tears.
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: Renée Zellweger is excellent in an otherwise superficial and unfocused biopic.
  • Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: I walked in rather skeptical but I walked out a believer. The way Renée Zellweger channels Judy Garland is simply astonishing.
  • Dan Lybarger @ Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
    • Excerpt: Renée Zellweger has Judy Garland down; effortlessly imitating the Wizard of Oz star’s delivery and mannerisms. She approaches the title role in Judy with conviction, raising the biopic above the level of cheap novelty. But had the film consisted simply of Zellweger bellowing show tunes, it might have been more substantial.

    • Excerpt: It’s a complex role depicting a complex soul and Zellweger is stunning in her portrayal even if the package does little to advance the bio-pic beyond its generic machinations.
  • Eddie Pasa @ DC Filmdom
  • [New] | Betty Jo Tucker @ ReelTalk Movie Reviews
    • Excerpt: This biopic is painful to see for many avid Garland fans, but the last big scene probably cinches an Oscar for Zellweger.
