With his self-deprecating demeanor and easy laugh, Glass is a congenial presence, and now and then he lets an insight drop.
67
The A.V. Club
As fascinating as Glass often is, it's simultaneously too conventional and not conventional enough.
63
The lack of a credible external perspective beyond the narrative provided by Glass, his friends, family, and associates, makes the film feel too cozy.
60
Much like its subject: affable, quotable and emotionally guarded in the extreme.

Variety
Another superficial film about music from Scott Hicks ("Shine"), picture runs a distant second to the superior new film on John Adams and Peter Sellars, "Wonders Are Many," which really captures how a composer works.
40
Village Voice
Glass is a stupefyingly dull portrait of a man who doesn't seem to be lying when he says, "I have so few secrets."
