Critic Reviews of "Being There"Hollywood ReporterDecember 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 MagazineJuly 08, 2014
Here is a comedy that valiantly defies both gravity and the latest Hollywood fashion.VarietyOctober 31, 2007
A highly unusual and an unusually fine film.Chicago ReaderOctober 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 OutJanuary 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 TimesMay 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.QuickflixOctober 20, 2014
Even in a chilly movie like this, deaths have resonance (whether they're on camera, or off).Radio TimesJuly 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 MagazineJuly 08, 2014
The movie's main effect is to confirm how versatile Sellers has always been.Total FilmJuly 08, 2014
A Gumpish plot? Perhaps, but Being There is much more subtle and enigmatic than that.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsJanuary 26, 2012
Peter Sellers gives a stellar performance.Common Sense MediaJanuary 02, 2011
Amazingly poignant performance by Peter Sellers.
