A stirring examination of truth at odds with perception, the high price of privacy in the media era and the blinding veil of blood ties.

It s difficult to imagine another doc having such extraordinary material at its disposal, or another filmed family being as spellbinding.

Gripping, lacerating, moving, and tragic -- a work of documentary art.

Jarecki has taken an impossible subject, and subjects, and made a movie that works as crime thriller, social document and, occasionally, surrealist comedy.

For certain, things are never black or white, always gray. Yet after viewing this film, one is persuaded that even gray has many shades and hues.

By the end of this excellent film, you may find yourself admitting you know less about its subjects than when you started.

This extraordinary film refracts truth through the prism of memory, until what you get is a tragedy of Shakespearean dimensions, full of sacrifice and betrayal.
