If the filmmaker wants to make a personal video memory of his dad, so be it. But to serve up this documentary as something serious, with dramatic and political context for a wider audience, then the filmmaker totally fails. It has too little structure, tension, and journalistic effort to make an engrossing movie. So many follow-up questions aren't asked, so much nostalgic remembrances by family members that serve no purpose to a general audience, so many digressions, and no real examination of the times. This might make a good present to other members of the director's family, but as something to leave the house and go buy a ticket at a theatre, forget about it.
