Critic Reviews for Three Identical Strangers
Zooms in on the nature versus nurture question that has entranced, irritated and boggled humans for centuries.
A documentary with a story so outlandish it might well have been rejected by a Hollywood studio had a screenwriter pitched it as the basis of a fictional movie.
The less you know about Three Identical Strangers going in, the better, so don't read this part until after you've seen the movie. And you should see it, because it's brilliantly made and contains riveting material.

Audience Reviews for Three Identical Strangers
The last three or so minutes of this thing will get you despite it dragging slightly from moment to moment in the last half hour. Utterly, utterly fascinating stuff here that is as much about nature versus nurture as it is context, context, context. To this point, the editing is outstanding. Hesitant to say much more about it as I knew little to nothing walking in and came out completely chilled and rather mystified. Will certainly come back to this again (and probably again & again). Cannot stop thinking about it.
It gets a little too saccharine in some of its conclusions, especially when you consider all the dark turns the narrative takes, but perhaps that is an effort to rebuke the cruelty inflicted on these people. Regardless its a compelling narrative.
A thoroughly intriguing and disturbing documentary on the nature/nurture debate that really whipsaws your emotions. The movie is basically a horror story of these triplets who were treated as lab rats. Aptly directed and edited Three Identical Strangers was a revelation. One of the saddest movies I have watched in a long time. (8-11-18)
