This movie isn't for the faint of heart. It details, dramatizes and even captures real footage shot at nearly every stage of Jonathan Caouette's development from childhood on through adulthood. For me, the most heart-wrenching bits are those in which the director (Caouette) turns the camera on himself and lets us see what it's like to struggle to understand how and why his mother has and continues to suffer with mental illness either brought about or enhanced by her own experiences, the choices her own parents made and suggestions that came from outside the family. This is an emotional journey - one you're not likely to forget for a very long time.
