Marissa Bakke’s review published on Letterboxd:
I do not understand the negativity. To me, this movie was incredible. It was sexy, inspiring, funny, heartbreaking... This movie was everything! I thought it was absolutely wonderful that it equally balanced the story of his life and the magic behind their music. Neither plot outshone the other. The character story lines were well-scripted and acted. And, unlike other music films, the recording studio and stage shows were captivating instead of a snooze. Also, applause for Rami Malek. He embraced the shit out of the role!
