A haunting depiction of a disintegrating family, and a powerful argument on the elusiveness of truth.

Without a doubt a disconcertingly engrossing, difficult-to-shake experience.
Disturbing, yet undeniably fascinating.
It takes the concept of reality television and twists it into a shocking but poignant art form.
Watching this remarkable production is like going on safari to that creepy world. It's a fascinating place to visit, but you wouldn't, not for a minute, want to live there.
The MPAA doesn't have a rating for queasy-making and heartbreaking. If it did, then Capturing the Friedmans would carry an advisory.
A documentary you won't be able to shake.
There's no doubt that the film delivers the emotional equivalent of a kidney punch, but that's as much a result of the filmmaker's attitude-better suited to entomological research-as it is to the Friedmans themselves.
While with any number of... documentaries one can happily say "wait until it turns up on the small screen", with Capturing the Friedmans it is well worth sitting in the dark to find out the extent to which you think you are being deliberately kept there.
Captivating and intense. Mature teens+.
Like the darkest pop song Billy Joel never wrote, "Friedmans" hauntingly asked how far faith goes when it comes to family, how much mercy we'd grant them based merely on our memories and how forgiveness sometimes endures years of fury before it's granted.
Probing into the elusive nature of truth, through the prism of one Jewish family, this is one of the most perplexing and disturbing docus in American film history
...an insane document, a slice of life that we probably should never have seen. But now that we have seen it, it's too late to deny its crippling poignancy...
While Andrew Jarecki is not really honest about the information he provides, especially as he doesn't even interviews more victims, this is still a shocking and horridly tragic story that calls into serious question the veracity of accusations tainted by the media and public opinion.
Its a fun fact that this film is in the "special interest" category, eh?
"Who do you believe?"
Documentary on the Friedmans, a seemingly typical, upper-middleclass Jewish family whose world is instantly transformed when the father and his youngest son are arrested and charged with shocking and horrible crimes.
I love how this was structured as mystery of sorts, and how nobody was ever strictly villainized. I also love that David Friedman is a clown for a living. You can't make this stuff up, guys.
