Life is the collection of memories, and Campbell is losing them. But there is solace in the reality that you will not miss what you cannot recall.

Brad Wheeler, Globe and Mail, 2015-04-03

 

It's a rare, intensely personal look at Alzheimer's that will be tragically familiar to those who have lived with it and sobering and sad for those who have not.

Linda Barnard, Toronto Star, 2015-04-02

 

One of Glen Campbell's final songs was Not Gonna Miss You, dedicated to his wife. I can't imagine anyone listening to it and not being moved.

Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times, 2015-01-07

 

This is a portrait of a star gaining luster even as his mortality becomes more evident.

Tom Keogh, Seattle Times, 2014-12-26

 

A wrenching document, Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me is a painful but necessary tribute to a singular talent.

Preston Jones, Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.com, 2014-11-20

 

This simultaneously heartbreaking and joyful doc provides a fitting capstone to an extraordinary musical career.

Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, 2014-11-18

 

The film puts a brave, much-adored face on a disease that has touched so many families.

Michael Rechtshaffen, Los Angeles Times, 2014-11-17

 

This film is bound to help boost Campbell's legacy as a performer and an artist, making classic tunes such as "Gentle on My Mind" and "Wichita Lineman" more indelible than ever.

David Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle, 2014-11-13

 

As difficult as it is to witness Campbell's struggles, especially when he forgets the names of his wife and children, "I'll Be Me" is an elevating experience, inviting the audience to bear witness to Campbell's courage, humor and spiritual strength.

Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, 2014-11-06

 

Could have been an exercise in exploitation but instead is a heartfelt, moving and bracingly honest document of a famous man as he fades away.

Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic, 2014-11-05

 

"Glen Campbell: I'll be Me" is a gift, to its celebrated subject, who gets a final keepsake, and to its audience, which gets a ticket to our shared past and an insight into our shared future.

Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 2014-10-30

 

A rare combination of instructive and poignant.

Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, 2014-10-23

 

Valedictory and elegiac, Keach's film captures a performer who only truly seems to inhabit himself during the performances.

Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice, 2014-10-21

 

Blends intimate and unflinching medical details, poignant performance footage and a survey of its subject's place in musical history through well-chosen archival footage and interviews with other iconic performers.

Alissa Simon, Variety, 2014-10-21
