This is no starry-eyed, heart-on-sleeve flashback but a low-key, respectful one, no less appealing for its relative reserve.

Uncle Howard begins as a slightly tentative film about a nephew's quest to discover more about his adored film-maker uncle, Howard Brookner. But it grows into a perceptive, poignant documentary which looks at many things.

The doc's beautiful final sequence rips your heart out.

The New York Times
The movie is a deft sort of dual narrative.
75
A deeply personal piece of work that offers both an introduction (or re-introduction?) to the director's uncle - a once-burgeoning independent filmmaker who died of AIDS in 1989 at just 31 years of age - and a somber meditation on talent lost.
70
A bit disjointed but also vibrant and loving.
60
Here is a sensitive, intelligent portrait of film director Howard Brookner.
60
It's a sad project, a testament to lives cut short and stories half-told.
