Monsters and Critics

Autistics must communicate and this film shows how. Or does it? Academy Award winner Gerardine Wurzburg ("Educating Peter") will take you by surprise with this upbeat and educational film about autistics who are breaking through.

Though the movie can be a bit meandering at times, Wurzberg deserves credit for keeping the focus on her subjects' humanity without being self-conscious about doing so.

"Wretches and Jabberers" is a moving and eye-opening testament to the desire of autistic people to be a part of the world, not apart from it -- or at least to be understood.

If it's possible to make a happy movie about people whose brain chemistry makes it difficult for them to communicate their needs and show their intelligence to others, this is it.

You want to tell the filmmakers to get on with it, and to more eloquently detail the rest of Tracy and Larry's story beyond their occupation.

The film is maddeningly vague about how the two men made their initial breakthroughs, but it certainly is proof that even those who are written off as children can find a voice.
