Critics reviews

Made for television, Baadasssss! veers from some weakly naturalistic scenes – like the documentary about Terry Gilliam, Lost in La Mancha (2002), it tends to exaggerate the banal, logistical difficulties of filmmaking into major melodrama – to strenuous attempts to jazz up proceedings with rapid montages and fantasy inserts.
