A Folksy Portrayal of a Hard-Core Criminal, 4 March 2007
Author: Dianne from United States

This is a very effective documentary about the film-maker's reunion with his "little brother" in the big brother program they partook of in the early 80's. The fact that the film-maker has close ties with the film's subject sets it apart from your usual documentary. Knowing that the filmmaker, Steve, wasn't aware of Stevie's many infractions before the reunion makes you realize that this was far from a predictable documentary. Even worse, is the crime that he commits during the two year break after Steve's first reunion. The film is unsettling as you see the many situations where Steve is trying to be a friend and at the same time, a removed observer. The resulting film shows that Steve succeeded in creating a healthy balance. Though Stevie's nature is, to me, your run-of-the-mill, criminal and the attention he receives, undeserved, it is interesting to see how families of criminals cope, or don't cope. This movie also shows the beauty that the developmentally disabled it features offer to the world---their scholastic intelligence is limited but their wisdom and love is far-reaching. I will say that Stevie, though hard-core in his criminal acts, was a thinking, feeling person and this is evidenced by the genuine tears he sheds a few times in this film. I am hopeful that when he comes out of prison in 2009, that he will be a valuable person in society----and that the chip on his shoulder will be forever gone.
