Tell Them Who You Are
Time Out says
What’s more interesting is the opportunity that both Haskell and Mark take to try to build bridges between the arrogant, radical father (‘I don’t think there’s been a movie I’ve been on that I wasn’t certain I could direct better’) and the bitter, conservative son. It’s Haskell whose fiery presence gives the film its energy – all credit, though, to Mark for embracing their difficult relationship so honestly. We learn that Mark’s biggest project prior to this one was a pedestrian TV doc about the workings of Air Force One, and he’s admirably honest about his own limited skills as a filmmaker. But it’s arresting and moving stuff, with just a hint of awkward voyeurism when the pair visit their respective mother and ex-wife, lingering in the throes of dementia in a home.
