Critic Reviews for Minding the Gap
Minding the Gap feels deceptively loose, even rambling, but as the seasons pass (the film takes place over four years), you begin to feel Liu's drive toward catharsis for all three of his main characters.
"Minding the Gap" is a personal documentary of the highest sort, in which the film's necessity to the filmmaker-and its obstacles, its resistances, its emotional and moral demands on him-are part of its very existence.
As such, it possesses an intimacy that could never be acquired without years of shared experience, and heartache. And probably road rash.
It would be impressive even without the palpable sense of connection and understanding that Liu brings to the material, but its easygoing intimacy is what puts it over the top.
It's heartbreaking, raw, and true. But it never veers into exploitation or becomes oppressively maudlin.
