A compelling look at the great cinematographer Haskell Wexler by his photojournalist son Mark.

Beneath its exploration of fatherly distance, this is really a portrait of why cranks make better artists than earnest nice guys.
Chicago-bred Haskell is such an intense, contentious, prickly figure, he would tend to take over any film portrait, and he definitely dominates here.
What Mark does, better perhaps than either he or his father realizes, is to capture some aspects of a lifelong rivalry that involves love but not much contentment.
A remarkable work -- lively, painful, humorous, deeply revealing of both father and son -- that is worthy of one of Hollywood's finest directors of photography.
Near the beginning of the movie, the younger Wexler admits that the film is his attempt to get closer to his father. This sense of personal mission helps make Tell Them Who You Are the richest documentary of its kind since Terry Zwigoff's "Crumb."
A superb portrait of a father and son disguised as a docu about Haskell Wexler.
