Jonah Hill’s Netflix documentary “Stutz,” which focuses on his time in therapy and his relationship with his therapist, Phil Stutz, has achieved a rare 100% Rotten Tomatoes score. Released in November 2023, the movie, which Hill stars in and directs, has provided an emotionally rewarding and enlightening viewing experience for audiences. People can’t get enough!
- “Stutz” sees the psychologist and actor having frank conversations about mental health. Jonah Hill admits that he was in a very bad place before meeting Stutz, but that the professional’s tools have helped him immensely. Stutz, who suffers from Parkinson’s disease, also opened up about his own life and his journey to where he is now in his career.
- “The Tools” are shared with viewers in the documentary. Some of Stutz’s most fundamental and important “Tools” are outlined in the feature. Those include but are not limited to Active Love, Radical Acceptance, The Grateful Flow, and Loss Processing. While simple, these visualization exercises are incredibly effective and can be used by anyone, anywhere, at any time.
- Viewers have described “Stutz” as “inspirational” and praised Jonah Hill for being so candid. “Can’t stop thinking about how much I loved Stutz, and how much I appreciate Jonah Hill’s vulnerability,” one person wrote on Twitter. Another added: “You gotta check out this documentary Stutz on Netflix. Incredibly moving, inspirational and his ideas are powerful. If you suffer from depression, procrastination or just feel stuck in life then I encourage you to watch this. Might be the best thing you do today.”
- Film critics are just as full of positive things to say. All 17 reviews on Rotten Tomatoes about “Stutz” are positive, giving the documentary a 100% rating. It’s so rare that it’s almost unheard of. “This film has a worthy goal: to change the perspectives of people who might be hurting right now. For those willing to go with its flow, it has a real power,” said The Los Angeles Times. “Instead of a stagy one-sided interview, we’re treated to an honest conversation about mental health and human flaws between two men who share a touchingly warm bond,” added The Financial Times.
“Stutz” is available to stream on Netflix now.
