I originally saw this because it had received so many rave reviews when it came out in theaters and on video, but honestly this has to be the most pretentious documentary I've probably ever seen.

Everyone shouls see this movie just to realize where the future of cinema is headed. Certainly one of the strangest and most interesting movies of the year, and I suspect that in years to come a number of other strange and interesting movies will show traces of its influence.

Filmmaker Jonathan Caouette's documentary on growing up with his schizophrenic mother -- a mixture of snapshots, Super-8, answering machine messages, video diaries, early short films, and more -- culled from 19 years of his life.

"A Movie That Is A Guilty Pleasure I don't understand the backlash against this documentary. It could be the narrator's homosexuality, or a perceived 'fatalism' about his abusive past of rape and his fear that he'll lose grip on reality like his mother, or maybe it's because he made the movie on Imovie or whatever Apple computers have. Tarnation is a worthy experience."

" Caouette's use of iMovie is virtuoso, with overlapping wipes, dissolves, saturation, split screens, multiple panes, graphics, and complex montages... Tarnation" uses its jagged style without abusing it. - Roger Ebert"

"Yksi henkisesti ja fyysisesti vaikeimmista elokuvista, jonka olen koskaan katsonut. Jonathan Caouetten tutkimus omasta elämästään, jota on värittänyt skitsofreninen äiti ja tämän kautta oma itsetuhoisuus. Caouette yrittää ymmärtää, että miten hänestä on tullut hän. Jokainen meistä yrittää ymmärtää tämän. Miksi minä olen minä? En tiedä, ja yllättäen Caouette ei pääse lopulta yhtään sen pidemmälle. Miten helvetissä sellainen on edes mahdollista, jos äiti on s"
