The more Hope's own obsession grows, the more involving the movie gets, even as it raises ethical questions about its making - and about those who continue to watch.
Rough-hewn stylistically and occasionally bordering on self-indulgence, 32 Pills: My Sister's Suicide nonetheless packs a powerful emotional punch with its unflinching portrait of two siblings dealing with past and present demons.
Gripping and discomfiting, this first directorial feature by the veteran editor is the kind of diaristic inquiry that can seem self-indulgent but here sports a fearlessness that transcends vanity - at times it's downright unflattering.
There are no clear answers, emotions, or stories in this documentary. Everything is muddled and difficult in a way that seems to mirror its creator's pain.
32 Pills portrays a creative spirit hoping to refine her struggle and agony into work that would have remained poignant had the artist lived. We meet both a driven spirit and one too often forced to disappoint those around her.
The film is occasionally shocking (the number of medications Ruth had tried is staggering) and, of course, pervasively heartbreaking.
