ruinmysleep’s review published on Letterboxd :
A fun, fond look back on the creation of a not-so-fun movie. The filmmaker, who starred in Once Were Warriors as a teenager, reunites the actors who portrayed his dysfunctional (fictional) family. While this gives insight into casting and performance decisions, there are only a few clips from an interview with the director, Lee Tamahori, and none with the screenwriter, Riwia Brown. The reunion is woefully incomplete and slightly unsatisfying, particularly without her presence.
