Critic Reviews for Mistaken for Strangers
The best thing about Mistaken for Strangers, a new documentary about the band the National, is that you don't have to be a fan to enjoy it.
For all their obvious differences, the bond between affable Tom and laser-intense Matt reveals itself in ways both subtle and profound.
Alternately hilarious, cringe-inducing, inspiring, depressing, stupid and profoundly intelligent.
Audience Reviews for Mistaken for Strangers
I'm not a huge supporter of music documentaries but this was very interesting. The brother lost in the limelight and struggling to find his own place may sound tiresome but this film has a lot of heart. The behind the scenes portrait of one of the greatest and critically acclaimed bands of the last ten years. The film is overly long and never over stays its welcome, the interaction between the brothers are very hilarious and uncomfortable at times. The scene where the older brother is questioning why the younger brother has left a bowl of cereal in the bathroom is priceless. By the end you are swept up in the brothers search for meaning and are provided insight into a band who has managed to avoid mainstream popularity for their duration. 21-07-2017.
A captivating rock-doc that begins rather clumsy but later grows to become a surprisingly revealing portrait of a man who has always felt diminished compared to his successful brother - who happens to be the lead singer of a fantastic indie rock band of worldwide reputation.
