Three sentence movie reviews: Stories We Tell
Sarah Polley has been on my “to watch” list since I saw the movie Go, so I was going to see this documentary anyway, even if it didn’t have a very intriguing premise. Polley did a great job of giving us glimpses of the key players without revealing too much information early on which paid off in that she kept pulling me further into her story as more details were revealed. I feel conflicted about the “footage” of her mother, but not so overly so that it detracts from this very, very good movie.
Where watched: Laurelhurst Theater w/S. North.

I felt like this story subtly pulled me in layer by layer. There were some quite unexpected aspects to the story and the story telling. I remember having a long discussion about the film on the way home.
I love the movie "Go" and I love Sarah Polley in it. I never heard of this film before though, but I guess Dallas isn't really big on the whole "art house" movie scene.
