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
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.
One of those films I almost forgot I saw, but was extremely glad just now I found the title as the subject matter - a filmmaker brother (not a great one, but trying) follows around his up-n-coming brother musician while he's promoting a new album and playing concerts. Funny, affecting, and honest on all sides. charmingly done
I'm not even really familiar with The National, but I loved this movie. Tom and Matt are like 2 sides of one person. We all want to be like Matt but we're much closer to Tom. This was a disarmingly human movie that will make your heart explode.
