3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Beautifully organized, the film moves seamlessly from Valentino as 'the celebrity,' into the business behind his brand name, the encroaching threat of his company's new owner and the ultimate end of the professional and creative freedom that made it possible for Valentino to 'assume the throne' from which he famously reigned."

- Sara Schieron, Box Office

3 stars out of 4 -- "VALENTINO: THE LAST EMPEROR is a documentary with privileged access to the legendary designer in his studio, workshop, backstage, his homes, even aboard his yacht and private jet..."

- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
