A moving and important film.
An earnest, heartrending look at the divide between religious fundamentalists and their gay relatives. It's also heavy-handed and devotes too much time to bigoted views.
Just how these families interact may surprise you.
As part of Mr. Dong's continuing exploration of homosexuality in America, Family Fundamentals is an earnest study in despair.
Dong never pushes for insights beyond the superficial tensions of the dynamic he's dissecting, and the film settles too easily along the contours of expectation.
Compassionately explores the seemingly irreconcilable situation between conservative Christian parents and their estranged gay and lesbian children.
A timely and incisive film about the untenable conflict between warring American values -- religious fundamentalism versus family love.
Compassionate, potent documentary.
It's always disappointing when a documentary fails to live up to -- or offer any new insight into -- its chosen topic. Unfortunately, that's precisely what Arthur Dong's Family Fundamentals does.
Has moments of great poignancy and insight.
So many documentaries like this presuppose religious bigotry or zealous nuttiness of its antagonists, but Family Fundamentals displays a rare gift for unflinching impartiality.
[Dong] makes a valiant effort to understand everyone's point of view, and he does such a good job of it that Family Fundamentals gets you riled up.
