A capable film featuring superbly spiky performances...
Kelly's film is largely entertaining, set in a world where everyone is playing someone else.
While technically a supporting character, Dern often steals the show, relishing the opportunity to shift between a trio of personalities to darkly comic effect. That's appropriate in a movie all about the perils of seeking attention.
For a movie about what's going on under the elaborately staged surface, it's pretty much all surface, right down to its shallow observations about gender fluidity, queer identity and the creative freedom of the alternate persona.
This is a surprisingly insightful, well-handled telling of an incredibly messy, sometimes repulsive, but strangely fascinating bit of popular history.
This is a thoroughly serviceable indie film built around both dense and dazzling performances by Dern and Stewart alike, so this should be a slam dunk, and yet...these are far from ordinary times.
It's truly fascinating to witness Stewart first perform as the naive, likable Knoop, and the as the affected, aloof LeRoy.
[F]or a subject known for such personality, this biopic (of sorts) struggles to find one of its own.
Stilted and steeped in uninspired biopic tropes, the film never comes close to an inventiveness worthy of JT's imaginative, outrageous story.
Kristen Stewart as JT LeRoy is the very definition of perfect casting. This is a role that Stewart was born to play.
The story of JT LeRoy, the best-selling author who never really existed, gets the standard biopic treatment in Justin Kelly's unfortunately uninspired Jeremiah Terminator LeRoy.
... ignites this stimulating exploration of identity and what constitutes a real person versus a figment of one's imagination.
