A live documentary experience focusing on the history and legacy of the Beastie Boys and its intimate, personal story.



The Playlist - Jason Bailey
It is, in essence, a two-hour curtain call, a celebration of not only their music but their friendship, and a chance for the duo to have the last word on their legacy.
Uproxx - Mike Ryan
This is a film that’s hilarious, sad, and for some reason features an entire montage set to Dolly Parton’s “9 to 5.”
IndieWire - Eric Kohn
Much of the movie operates as a playful nostalgia trip, and at two hours that’s asking a lot, but Beastie Boys Story is also imbued with a moving sense of purpose: The story doubles as a tribute to beloved multi-hyphenate Adam “MCA” Yauch, whose 2012 death from cancer catalyzed the dissolution of the group.
Consequence of Sound - Clint Worthington
To be sure, the concept of Spike Jonze directing a Beastie Boys documentary conjures up flashier results than this. But taking it for what it is, Beastie Boys Story remains an entertaining, insightful, and unexpectedly fun look back at three of hip-hop’s most iconic voices.
The Guardian - Peter Bradshaw
This film is a time capsule of the 1980s: an era that was crass and excessive in so many ways, but now seems weirdly exotic.
