Reviews


91
Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman
A rowdy, richly offbeat biopic.
88
Chicago Tribune - Michael Phillips
Talk to Me has a great subject and a great actor working in tandem, reminding audiences that once upon a time media personalities used to fight The Man, not be The Man.
80
The Hollywood Reporter - Michael Rechtshaffen
While Cheadle's fearlessly robust performance absolutely galvanizes Talk to Me, it's not the only thing that makes Kasi Lemmons' third feature such a pleasure to take in.
80
The New York Times - A.O. Scott
The result is a movie that offers uplift without phoniness, history without undue didacticism and a fair number of funny, dirty jokes.
70
Washington Post - Stephen Hunter
Talk to Me, with two great actors, tells that story, and it makes you feel not only the joy people experienced in the wash of Greene's raucous, truth-saying humor, but also his wisdom and calm. And many mourned his death at 55 in 1984.
