Pop & Me (1999)
Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.
Documentary filmmaker Chris Roe examines the bonds between fathers and sons in this documentary, which takes a slightly unusual approach to its subject -- Roe filmed it on a long road trip around the world, with his father in tow. As Chris and his father, Richard Roe interact and occasionally butt heads (home movie footage and narration from Chris fill in details on their background), they visit a wide variety of fathers and sons, ranging from a Hungarian who was forced to give up a career in music to work for the government who watches his son play piano with quiet pride, to a poverty-stricken Vietnamese man taking care of his ailing and senile father as best he can, to Julian Lennon, who offers a frank and unsentimental assessment of his famous dad: "He gave more love to the world than he did to me." Pop & Me is Chris Roe's first feature film; he's previously worked as a visual designer for ESPN2.
