NYT Review
According to a young fan interviewed in “Katy Perry: Part of Me," attending a Katy Perry concert is like being shot with an arrow of Katy Perryness. To watch the movie, a 3-D concert documentary directed by Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz, is to be subjected to an artillery barrage of Katy Perryness. Read the review

We're left with zero sense of what she's really like as a granddaughter, sister, boss, or friend.
Dana Stevens, Slate  full review
 
Although there are moments when the filmmakers' fingerprints are nearly visible on the manipulated putty of an audience, the scenes aren't enough to break the fruit-flavored spell.
Stephanie Merry, Washington Post  full review
 
"Part of Me" is more electronic press kit than fly-on-the-wall documentary.
Adam Graham, Detroit News  full review
 
Just like it says, "Part of Me" is one aspect of Perry, but her fans may leave the movie wanting more.
Mark Shanahan, Boston Globe  full review
 
What is worth seeing - and shelling out the 3-D premium for - is Perry's eye-popping showmanship.
David Hiltbrand, Philadelphia Inquirer  full review
 
I gained respect for Perry, her work ethic and personal rediscovery.
Mario Tarradell, Dallas Morning News  full review
 
I'm willing to believe Perry is everything "Part of Me" says she is: kind, smart, talented, hardworking, deserving of success. I just wish the movie trusted me to decide for myself.
Rafer Guzman, Newsday  full review
 
Part of Me works hard to prove it's more than a glorified infomercial, and one reason it is more is that Perry has a startling story to tell.
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly  full review
 
Surely there are more interesting subjects, but Perry manages to pull it off here, coming off completely likable and real, never insufferable and fake.
Kevin C. Johnson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch  full review
 
[It] goes a bit beyond the usual music documentaries, which rarely document anything beyond how beloved their stars are.
Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger  full review
 
Ever the professional, the pop star has surrounded herself with people who know how to make a tour work - but none of them seem well-equipped to give a heartbroken 27-year-old girl a much needed hug.
Sara Stewart, New York Post  full review
 
I'm not sure what I was expecting from "Katy Perry: Part of Me," but I know it wasn't this: a pleasant surprise.
Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic  full review
 
You realize the main drama of the movie - and Perry's career - is not that she has any special artistic talent, but rather the drive to take on an insane workload and see it through to the bitter end.
Andrew Matson, Seattle Times  full review
 
Any self-produced documentary about oneself is bound to be a propaganda film, but "Katy Perry: Part of Me" is a good one, and a persuasive one.
Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle  full review
 
It's difficult to assess the authenticity of Perry's big-screen portrait, shaped by handlers, friends, family and gushing Katy Kats. But her zeal, geeky enthusiasm and generous spirit feel genuine.
Edna Gundersen, USA Today  full review
 
As one record executive put it, for too long the industry tried to make Katy Perry into something or someone else. The secret, which "Part of Me" captures quite nicely, was to just let her be.
Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times  full review
 
There's nothing new or radical in those ideals - learning to accept yourself, not taking life too seriously - but they are messages that resonate with her young fans, female and male, and that's not at all a bad thing.
Bruce Demara, Toronto Star  full review
 
"Part of Me" succeeds because it's not afraid to let its big star be vulnerable.
Kara Nesvig, Minneapolis Star Tribune  full review
 
"Part of Me" will never be mistaken for "The Red Shoes" (though Ms. Perry has some of those, as well as every other color), but her negotiation of the painfully competing demands of stardom and marriage is undeniably poignant.
A.O. Scott, New York Times  full review
