Critic Reviews for Mother

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (1)

These subjects have been the focus of documentaries before but rarely in this combination and with such an unflinching resolve to keep filming in uncomfortable moments.

It's difficult to engage meaningfully with some of the subjects when the filmmaker is content to accept the fact that they only have their façades to offer.
