Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 02/01/2013
"Politicians, civic leaders and journalists who were thorns in Mr. Koch's side offer measured, even affectionate assessments of his administration, though some hard feelings persist..."
A.V. Club - 01/31/2013
"Barsky -- a former newspaper reporter -- covers Koch's story magnificently as a journalist." -- Grade: A-
Entertainment Weekly - 02/15/2013
"[T]he job consumed, defined and branded him. KOCH shows us why."
Wall Street Journal - 02/28/2013
"The film advances no theories to explain his contradictions, only a thrilling, sometimes affecting account of what he did."
Los Angeles Times - 02/28/2013
"[I]t plays like the kind of eulogy Koch would have approved -- neither fawning nor eviscerating but always compelling."
