Candid, unflinching documentary, regardless of how amteurish it looks; you really get to know and feel for these people - good times and bad. It's flashy, funny, fascinating and fast-moving. Final Grade: A-

This movie was hard to watch at times. But when is it ever easy to watch a documentary about a pschizophrenic mother? The footage was pretty amazing. It was okay, but I'd recommend it.

Jonathan Caouette made this film for about two hundred dollars. Not only do I find that amazing, I also find it inspiring. Caouette really got creative with his storytelling: from voice-overs and fonts to home videos and photographs, all of them serve to progress the story. In a way, I got the sense that Caouette had been planning to make this film ever since he was a boy. Although the crux of this documentary is Caouette’s schizophrenic mother, I argue that this is more about Caouette’s journey from childhood to adulthood. I found it interesting that his sexuality is not a hindrance in his life, which is so unlike most LGBT films, both in fiction and non-fiction. The scenes where he would take on a particular character starting from when he was eleven blew my mind because he could act so...
