It works as a portrait of a father-son relationship that's awkward, volatile, uneven and always painfully real.

In the end this is a great movie about a filmmaker. It's also a great movie about fathers and sons.

Empire Magazine

A desperately sad look at two men whose determination to rebel against their heritage and succeed in their artform has rendered them unable to communicate. Compelling stuff, though.

With dad calling junior's filmmaking skills into question at every turn, this is a fascinating blend of fact and friction.

What we really get from son Mark's unusual take is a sterling movie about fathers (especially famous fathers) and offspring.

Equal parts fan mail and home video from Hell, Tell Them Who You Are is a fascinating piece of father-son psychotherapy la Hollywood.

The subject is a fascinating one, and the film is worth watching just to see how impressive Wexler's career has been.

More than a Hollywood profile, it becomes a filmmaker's effort to figure out how he relates, personally and professionally, to his famous father.

Unlike countless other bad-dad pictures, Tell Them moves gradually and elegantly toward a reconciliation that isn't too maudlin or forced.

Anyone who has been either a parent or a child will understand the push-me- pull-you, love-and-hate dynamic the film captures, and the attempt at reconciliation that it represents.

Not just a behind-the-scenes history chapter but an insightful father-son comedy-drama.

Capital Times (Madison, WI)

The film is an odd hybrid, sort of a family therapy session meshed with a Turner Classic Movies tribute doc, but the combination works in entertaining and poignant ways.

As fascinating as all the film history is, the movie's core is the dynamic between a famous but distant parent and his child.
