O que se diz lá fora acerca de THE SOLOIST:
«THE SOLOIST has all the elements of an uplifting drama, except for the uplift. The story is compelling, the actors are in place, but I was never sure what the filmmakers wanted me to feel about it.»
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.
«Neither rarefied art film nor widely accessible inspirational drama, THE SOLOIST falls between the cracks both creatively and commercially.»
Todd McCarthy, Variety.
«Some of the lost souls in THE SOLOIST, a big studio movie about a one-man rescue mission, look as thin as the crack pipes clamped between their lips.»
Manohla Dargis, New York Times.
«It's all a bit shapeless, yet made with sincerity and taste, and the two actors seize your sympathy.»
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly.
«This film version takes a somewhat romanticized view of both journalism and skid row yet is nevertheless a compassionate and compelling look at mental illness.»
Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter.
