Movie Info

Louisiana-born filmmaker John Maringouin arrives at the front door of his father Johnny Roe's New Orleans home unannounced to offer an apocalyptic portrait of his dysfunctional family in this unflinching, multi-sensory documentary that utilizes digital and auditory manipulation to take the viewer deeper into the psyche of a disturbed artist than they may care to travel. When Maringouin was just a child, his drug-addicted father once threatened to kill his family. These days, artist Johnny lives in drug-addicted squalor with his common-law wife Virgie. Now, as arguments erupt and threats are made, the pieces of the puzzle that Maringouin has worked for years to assemble finally begin to fall into place.

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

John Maringouin's emotionally raw Running Stumbled makes the term 'dysfunctional family' quaint and insufficient.

This astoundingly personal documentary grips us with its sheer audacity.

Shadows on the Wall

Alternates between laugh-out-loud funny moments of rural depravity and chilling depictions of human indecency.

Full Review… | June 23, 2006

It's a documentary, however, comparing it to fiction filmmaking, Running Stumbled plays out like a twisted Cassavetes film.
