80
Variety
An absorbing homage to obscure but fascinating late '70s-early '80s German stage artiste Klaus Nomi.
80
Village Voice
Made with considerable wit and style, Horn's thoughtful celebration of the era and its most uncanny diva could function as the show's ("East Village USA") supplement.
80
Horn, who knew Nomi, does an excellent job of evoking the exhilaratingly hedonistic period the film covers as well as the long shadow that the coming of AIDS casts over it.
80
Wall Street Journal
Intriguing and affecting documentary.
70
Chicago Reader
Andrew Horn, writer of “East Side Story,” directs, stylishly.
70
The A.V. Club
Without coming out and saying it, The Nomi Song creates the sense that its subject might simply have been a few hundred years ahead of his time.
70
L.A. Weekly
Dazzles with rare performance footage.
70
An affectionate portrait, not only of Nomi, but also of the long-gone days when downtown Manhattan was an affordable enclave for creative misfits.
63
New York Daily News
Occasionally exhilarating documentary.
60
And if you never learn much about the man behind the mask, well, that's as Nomi would have wanted it.
