This documentary examines the fascinating, controversial life of Oscar-winning cinematographer Haskell Wexler (his credits include One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf and many of John Sayles’s movies) and his relationship with his son Mark, who directs this film.

NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW – Almost every frame of “Tell Them Who You Are” conveys an intimate, emotionally charged understanding that only a spouse or an immediate family member could bring to such a project. 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.”
