A wonderful documentary
8 July 2013 | by (US) – See all my reviews

The strongest and most affecting of Alan Berliner's impressive list of quirky, personal documentaries to date. This study of his cantankerous, difficult, if also very bright (and buried under the surface, quite human) father is both very funny and sometimes very sad. Berliner captures perfectly the buttons that parents push in children and vice-versa as their interviews together often turn into angry verbal sparring matches.

And yet, by the end of the film, you can feel how much the gap between the two men has narrowed through the process, and that Berliner is left with more love and less anger and confusion about the man who raised him.

A very personal document, that paradoxically becomes more universal for daring to be so intimate and real.
