There's so much interesting material in the life of the Hemingways, but Running From Crazy doesn't do them enough justice.

It's Margaux, the tragic supermodel and failed actress who took her own life at 42, who emerges as the film's fount of heartbreak in several stunning scenes.

This heart-wrenching and deceptively conventional documentary manages the tensions in its subject and in the vérité approach in a fruitful, illuminating and surprisingly moving way.
