Tell Them Who You Are (15) <!-- none onestar twostar threestar fourstar fivestar -->

So much American cinema is about the love between fathers and sons that a movie about a love-hate relationship feels quite an anomaly. Haskell Wexler, as well as being possibly the world's greatest cinematographer, is also a committed liberal, a ladies' man and a very tetchy father - "I am the star of your fucking movie," he tells his son, photojournalist Mark, director of this intriguingly ambivalent documentary portrait. The son knows all too well what a "pain in the ass" his dad has been, and we feel for him as he tries to persuade the old goat to sign the permit form that will actually ensure the movie's release. As an inquiry into filial estrangement it hasn't the revelatory charge of My Architect, but Wexler senior's amusingly irascible persona makes it all worthwhile.
