Critics reviews

[Johnston] comes across as a version of both Robert and Charles Crumb, handily illustrating, in one man, both sides of the coin formed when art butts up against madness… Regardless of one’s personal opinion, The Devil And Daniel Johnston fascinates. It’s a portrait of a singular life that improbably touched millions, whether or not it did so for the “right” reasons.
