Stories We Tell (Sarah Polley 2012)

stories we tell

I can’t find any flaws in this Documentary. It worries me. I allways find flaws, always rather major ones, in all movies I watch. Maybe Sarah should have lent more heart to her step- siblings stories, but that is a moral question, more than a filmatic one. But I quess her decision about keeping this shocking and dramatic part of her movie low comes from the need to keep focus and pace in her main storylines. Damn it, I’m not able to deconstruct it, neither. I’m not able to put my finger on what exactly it is she does that makes me end up crying happily and wretchedly sorrowful in the sofa. Makes me crazy. A fantastic director!
