All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5)

A small-scale but brave and frequently funny documentary from North Woodmere-raised filmmaker Gayle Kirschenbaum.

Top Critic

Anyone who's ever had a contentious relationship with a parent should find something to relate to in Gayle Kirschenbaum's enjoyable documentary "Look at Us Now, Mother!"

April 8, 2016 | Full Review…

For a movie that promises an "epic journey" to explore a family's "long-buried suffering," it's strangely unsatisfying, and eventually wearisome, to find that this clan is deeply troubled perhaps only in the eyes of its filmmaker.

Gayle Kirschenbaum explores her fraught relationship with her mother in this richly ambivalent documentary.

Top Critic

Gayle's good-natured fight to reconcile with a person who sees nothing wrong with her own behavior proves both a fascinating character study and an intimate portrayal of a mother's love turned hostile.

April 5, 2016 | Full Review…

Candid, brave and moving, but it leaves too many unanswered questions that might have been asked by an unbiased filmmaker with more distance from the Kirschenbaum family.
