Critics have overwhelmingly praised the new documentary from National Geographic about Dr. Anthony Fauci, and overwhelmingly dissed the new Dave Chappelle special on Netflix, while fans appear to have the exact opposite conclusions.
Released on Disney Plus on October 6, the documentary Fauci has garnered 98 percent positive reviews from critics on Rotten Tomatoes.
"Fauci isn't the cure for the common bio-doc, but it offers an entertaining and edifying overview of a life largely spent in public service," the review website states.
On the other hand, just 2 percent of audiences gave the documentary a positive score.
Chappelle's latest Netflix special The Closer, which was released last week, received a 43 percent from critics, but an overwhelmingly positive amount of responses from audiences, at 97 percent.
While outlets like the CNN, Variety, and The New York Times have issued glowing reviews about the documentary, National Review film critic Armond White noted that "[National Geographic] dispenses with the old journalism rule of balance. It refuses to be thoroughly informative. Of more than 500 audience reviews, only 2% were positive."
"Too often in The Closer, it just sounds like Chappelle is using white privilege to excuse his own homophobia and transphobia," wrote NPR television critic Eric Deggans.
