  • Karl Delossantos @ Smash Cut Reviews
    • Excerpt: Dick Johnson is dead isn’t the old cliché of being about life instead of death. It’s very much about death. It’s unabashedly about death. However, it’s about the alternating sensations of crying and laughing we feel when we confront it.
  • Jared Mobarak @
    • Excerpt: More than an exercise for today, Dick Johnson Is Dead becomes a time capsule for tomorrow.
  • [New] | Beverly Questad @ It’s Just Movies
    • Excerpt: “Dick Johnson is Dead” is a zany, unexpected dark humor documentary that toys with the nature of death and works to help us all make light of our own eventual end.
  • Josh Taylor @ The Forgetful Film Critic
    • Excerpt: Director Kirsten Johnson’s heartfelt, moving new documentary, Dick Johnson Is Dead, takes ninety minutes – culled from years of shooting for the picture – to make an uneasy, gallows humor sort of peace with the finality of death. It is a love letter from a daughter to a father, and vice versa.
