One is left with the feeling the trip was more in service of the film's narrative than a dream-fulfilling jaunt for Tom.

Documentaries about disabilities don't come any smarter or more touching than "Mission to Lars," a beautiful sibling road trip tale with a heavy-metal flourish.

In the particulars of a family quest film, viewers should see the universal. But in William Spicer and James Moore's documentary Mission to Lars, we instead get a whole lot of the specifics.

It will not teach you very much about either autism or Metallica, but you will leave the theater smiling.

The literal and emotional voyage that gives this sweet, touching and often funny doc its shape resists any temptation to overegg the self-discovery pudding.

The documentary has the somewhat loose feel of a family movie, which I suppose is what it is.
