A documentary sketch
20 December 2007 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

"Confessions of an Italian American" is a short documentary by the filmmakers behind 2006's great little festival flick "Tale of Two Megans", which was a tight, inspired piece of film. Their new piece lacks either of those qualities. It's basically a home movie presented through the eyes of film school graduates. It opens with a jarring, almost irksome on-screen introduction by the director of the show, who then gives us sixteen minutes about his feisty, camera shy Italian American father. It's a competently assembled and presented film that feels quite hollow. Perhaps it represents a mere sketch of an idea for a longer movie, but as it stands the subject matter is far too close to the filmmakers hearts to have any real meat or much to say.
