  • Critic Reviews of "Being There"

    Hollywood Reporter
    December 19, 2016

    Sellers has never been better and he embellishes the detached, childlike innocence of this character with perfect style and timing. It's a deceptively simple performance, but it is essentially the core and substance of the film.

    TIME Magazine
    July 08, 2014

    Here is a comedy that valiantly defies both gravity and the latest Hollywood fashion.

    October 31, 2007

    A highly unusual and an unusually fine film.

    Chicago Reader
    October 31, 2007

    No one seems to know what to do with the allegorical undertone of Jerzy Kosinski's script, but as a whole this 1979 film maintains a fine level of wit, sophistication, and insight.

    Time Out
    January 26, 2006

    What emerges in the end is a strange ambiguity of attitude to the American political system and a hollow humour about cultural values. The cinema of cynicism, really.

    New York Times
    May 20, 2003

    Hal Ashby directs Being There at an unruffled, elegant pace, the better to let Mr. Sellers's double-edged mannerisms make their full impression upon the audience.

    October 20, 2014

    Even in a chilly movie like this, deaths have resonance (whether they're on camera, or off).

    Radio Times
    July 08, 2014

    Hal Ashby's satirical parable on the way the USA surrenders itself to homespun evangelicalism gives Peter Sellers the role of a lifetime.

    People Magazine
    July 08, 2014

    The movie's main effect is to confirm how versatile Sellers has always been.

    Total Film
    July 08, 2014

    A Gumpish plot? Perhaps, but Being There is much more subtle and enigmatic than that.

    Ozus' World Movie Reviews
    January 26, 2012

    Peter Sellers gives a stellar performance.

    Common Sense Media
    January 02, 2011

    Amazingly poignant performance by Peter Sellers.
