Capturing the Friedmans ★★★

Decent documentary on what proved to be a horrific topic. Not knowing what the subject matter included prior to watching the film, I got a bit of a shock and found the story of Arnold Friedman and his family to be sad, shocking and in some situations really abhorrent.

I think the filmmaker does a reasonable job at trying to keep the viewpoint objective - without knowing more about the case it's difficult to make one's mind up, but the film certainly portrays the Friedman family's anguish and despair as their world unravels around them.
