The Myth of Fingerprints Reviews
Playing out like the audience is the uninvited guest to a dysfunctional New England family's adult child Thanksgiving reunion, you are asked to simply peer into the family secrets and driving reasons for the relative unhappiness of the characters. Complicated enough to illustrate that the siblings still care for one another and their parents, the uneasiness of the lack of communication and the glimpsing loneliness of the cinematography and score combine to make for an emotionally compelling and haunting tale that even the most well adjusted person can relate to at some point. Scripted well, directed finely, and acted to perfection, The Myth of Fingerprints deserves a far better rating than many are willing to concede. My guess is that it hits too close to home for some.
