Rewind (2020)



Critic Consensus: Rewind pulls at the roots of a family's horrific trauma with a deeply personal documentary that's hard to watch, but worth the effort.

Movie Info

In his candid personal memoir, Sasha Joseph Neulinger revisits his childhood and the events that tore apart his seemingly-perfect world. For as long as Neulinger can remember, his father was constantly filming--from birthday parties, to hockey games, to holidays. But his camera, trained on the frequent gatherings of a tight-knit family, was also documenting a hidden secret, the revelation of which would lead to a media firestorm, a high-stakes court battle, and a generational reckoning. Drawing upon an incredibly revealing home video archive, Neulinger revisits these events 20 years later to piece together an unflinching story of the cycles and consequences of abuse, to examine what it means to heal, and to use those experiences to effect positive change in the world. REWIND probes the gap between image and reality and proves just how little, and how much, a camera can capture.

Unquestionably difficult to watch - wait until you learn details of Uncle Harold's "punishment" - Neulinger's heroic act of bravery will hopefully encourage and inspire others to come forward.

Throughout it all Neulinger remains undaunted and relentless but also artful, as he shows how cinema can both conceal and reveal, how it can evade the truth, or confront it, and by so doing transcend it.

It's quite shocking and revelatory... It's really a powerful movie that accelerates in its power as it goes along.

It's not a thriller, but it is a horror movie... Beyond being a study in the horrors of a cycle of abuse, it's also a look at the discrepancies and disparities that occur in our justice system.
