Entertainment Reviews:

A.V. Club - 09/09/2010
"WHO IS HARRY NILSSON is a godsend just for bringing together so much rare footage....Scheinfeld captures the essence of the Nilsson experience..."
Box Office - 09/10/2010
3 stars out of 5 -- "The film is best at limning Nilsson's early years, such as the surprisingly Dickensian poverty that seems to provide a clue to the psychological underpinnings of Nilsson's later decline.
Los Angeles Times - 09/13/2010
"[A] personal, generous tribute reel designed to keep a musical master's legacy very much alive."
Mojo - 12/01/2010
3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he film runs chronologically through NIlsson's recordings, his personal triumphs and his travails."
Sight and Sound - 01/01/2011
"John Scheinfeld's film tells a bitterly tragic story laced with a lot of magic and rollicking laughter."

Product Description:

Although he never became the kind of international superstar someone with his remarkable skills should have, Harry Nilsson was arguably the most respected singer, songwriter, and record maker of the '70s, winning a pair of Grammys for his covers of "Everybody's Talkin'," and "Without You." This documentary features archival footage of the quirky performer, and copious new interviews with contemporaries who discuss his outrageous behavior and his formidable talent.
