Movie Reviews

AV Club - 9/10 by Alex McLevyIt doesn't make for the strongest film, but it does work like a case of people swapping outrageous war stories over a few beers.
Variety - 9/10 by Dennis HarveyGregory might have done a bit more to differentiate this more extensive investigation from those earlier pics' conventions. But the richness of the tale told here makes this competently packaged feature a keeper nonetheless.
AV Club - 8/10 by Alex McCownThe film is at its best when cutting between delicious stories... It doesn’t make for the strongest film, but it does work like a case of people swapping outrageous war stories over a few beers.
LifeZette.com - 8/10 by Christian TotoSome of the worst movies give way to the best documentaries...
Oregonian - 7/10 by Jamie S. RichWhether you remember the actual movie or not, "Lost Soul" is an excellent dissection of a multi-million-dollar movie gone off the rails.
User Review - 10/10 by Brandon WLost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley's Island of Dr. Moreau is directed by David Gregory, and it's about when Richard Stanley wanted to do The Island of Dr. Moreau after Hardware as he is a longtime fan of the source material. When he got his script finished, the effects done, got his actors, and when he starts shooting it, production problems start arise whether it be weather problems, or is just dealing with actors. When I heard about this film from a YouTuber called Comic Book 19, I definitely wanted to see it on Netflix as the person talking about it was interesting, and that I was fascinated about how the production of the film was a disaster as read about it on Wikipedia even though it is Wikipedia, so it could've been wrong. When I finished the documentary, it was really investing to watch. When I was hearing about Richard Stanley's introduction to how he's a fan of the source material, and what his vision was for the film, I was interested in it and really thought that it was going to work, but then I realized that it wasn't made as problems arise with the production. The interviewers kept me on focus, how it all went to disaster, and how Richard Stanley really tried to create the film version that he thought by whatever it takes. I was also getting emotionally invested in it when they start talking about how Val Kilmer and Marlon Brando kept messing with the production of the film and with each other, and it really felt like a miracle that the film was even made, even if the vision that Richard Stanley had on it is basically replaced by John Frankenheimer's version which even he didn't want to be involved either. Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley's Island of Dr. Moreau is a fantastic documentary that I'm glad someone took notice of it and got it made.
User Review - 10/10 by Tuomas RMielenkiintoinen dokkari katastrofaalistesta leffaprojektista. Taas yksi projekti joka saa miettimään kuinka huikea leffa olisi tullut jos alunperin ohjaajaksi palkattu intohimoinen henkilö olisi saanut rauhassa tehdä mieleisensä elokuvan ilman studion puuttumista ja mihin vain yksikin väärä näyttelijövalinta voi johtaa (Kilmer). Jos ei muuta niin tästä dokkarista selviää miksi lupaava ja kulttimaineessa oleva Richard Stanley ei ole tämän jälkeen päässyt ohjaamaan ja miksi äärimmäisen vittumaisen Val Kilmerin ura lopulta kusi pahasti. Brandon palkkaaminen miehen uran ihan loppuvaiheilla ei ollut hyvä idea millään mittarilla... Coppola sai miehestä irti viimeisen loistavan roolityön Ilmestyskirjassa (1979). Sen jälkeen mies tarjosi ohjaajille lähes pelkästään vittuilua.
User Review - 10/10 by Michael AAn excellent documentary .. I'm pleased by the visuals as well as the story which goes deep into the emotional elements of filmmaking .. Thanks also to David Gregory for using my footage from my YouTube, MrMike4uk 'Moved to London' for his low budget/ no budget production .. Michael Anderson
User Review - 10/10 by Janet SI watched this film a few weeks ago and was completely fascinated. This man is a genius but sadly didn't have the strength of character to stand up to the studios and tell them no, he couldn't reign in Kilmer and frankly was a little out of control. Would still have loved to have seen his version rather than the one we got.
User Review - 10/10 by Tracy EI never knew the story behind the '96 version of 'Island of Dr. Moreau'. I find it a testament to Mr. Stanley's dedication to his art and his *heart* that the documentary about how a vision can be twisted into a tragic mockery a thousand times better than the mockery that audiences got. I think, too, that if Val Kilmer is suffering from a mystery illness, it is something he more than deserves. Karma, man - She's a bitch, and rightly so. We need more people like Richard Stanley in the creative world.
