A good movie

I came across this documentary while watching a talk-show where a Dutch actress was mentioning some very interesting movies and this movie was one of those she chose to talk about. Eventually, it is a very peculiar and interesting documentary dealing with a rather unsettling subject. The interesting approach is that the makers used their own footage but also had unlimited access to the Friedmans o... read more

The media inundated the airwaves with coverage of the alleged crime, but some of the best ... (more)

20 of the Most Disturbing Docs (20 movies items)

"A documentary about the horrible crime of a pedophile from a family man. I don't know but watching this documentary really haunted me for days and made me thankful for my family. This doc was controversial at the time and this is not for the faint of the heart. Some people feel that this film doesn't criticize the crime enough. But watching it, it is more about a family's refusal to accept something about a member of their family. "

A good movie

“I came across this documentary while watching a talk-show where a Dutch actress was mentioning some very interesting movies and this movie was one of those she chose to talk about. Eventually, it is a very peculiar and interesting documentary dealing with a rather unsettling subject. The interesting approach is that the makers used their own footage but also had unlimited access to the Friedmans own home videos which is really surprising that the Friedmans would allow this, especially considering the controversial nature of this documentary. The other interesting thing is how neutral they managed to keep the whole thing. Eventually, it is some pretty heavy stuff since you see this family basically melting down and you are never sure if they actually deserve it or not. It works also as a ca” read more

"Documentary on the Friedmans, a seemingly typical, upper-middleclass Jewish family whose world is instantly transformed when the father and his youngest son are arrested and charged with shocking and horrible crimes. A strange one. Whilst quite engrossing to watch this is another docu' where you never really get to the truth in the story. Thought-provoking & a bit sad also."

"The first thing you need to know is that this is spectacular documentary film-making. A close second in terms of knowledge you may want to bring with you is just how dark and unsettling the material is here. Capturing the Friedmans gives us an intensely personal and thorough look at the workings of an upper-middle class family from a respected Long Island, New York neighborhood. Here we meet an accomplished and well thought of teacher named Aurthur, his wife, and their three sons. What fist app"
