Director: Crystal Moselle. 80 min. Rated R. Documentary.
Guaranteed to be one of the strangest documentaries you've ever seen. Seven siblings are imprisoned by their paranoid father, in an apartment, in the middle of New York City, for 16-17 years - and they watch movies (and reenact favorite scenes) as a window to the outside world. Cinema becomes their savior; their monolith to a concept they cannot fully grasp - until one of them leaves the apartment in an act of insurrection. Other than the above few words, I couldn't get much of a message out of this story. But in itself, it's a very disconcerting, bizarre snapshot.
PS: Won the award for Best Documentary at this year's Sundance Film Festival.
