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.
A relentlessly manipulative, aggressively upbeat movie that can't let a single moment pass without commenting on its wonderfulness through questionable editorial or musical choices.
An enjoyable, if flawed, watch.
Ultimately this is a film about overcoming adversity, facing your fears, family bonding and the power of music to reach anybody and everybody.
The film, which plays a little like a real-life Rain Man, may be a bit rough around the edges but that only adds to its charm. Kate and Will show their relationship with their brother in all its messiness.
Warm hearted and ultimately moving documentary that combines gentle humour, an engaging central quest and some thought provoking observations on learning disability.
Never mind the bickering and cajoling: this is a lovely, generous chronicle of a lovely, generous gesture.
