IMDb's Senior Editor, Keith Simanton has included The Ghost of Peter Sellers in his list of the top 25 movies of 2018 on IMDb. He had this to say about our film:
"Not since Lost in La Mancha have I seen anything so heartbreaking as this behind-the-scenes expose of a Peter Sellers/Peter Medak film that was shot but then shelved in 1973. Ghost ups the ante over La Mancha, however, by having the man at the center of the matter, Medak, directing, narrating, exorcising the guilt over a truly insane shoot, and laying to rest his animosity towards a troubled genius 45 years after the fact.".View the list
