MOM AND ME ★★★★

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | FILM -

Di­rected by Ken Wardrop Ok­la­homa ra­dio host Joe Cris­tano in­vites lis­ten­ers to phone in with thoughts on their moth­ers. Wardrop, di­rec­tor of His & Hers, films them as they do so. The high con­cept is shaky and un­nec­es­sary, but Wardrop has cho­sen his sub­jects per­fectly. Fea­tur­ing char­ac­ter­is­tic washed-out cam­er­a­work by the ex­cel­lent Kate McCul­lough, the film con­firms how even the most manly of men crum­ble slightly when their mother raises her voice. An­other lovely doc from the Ir­ish­man. PG cert, QFT, Belfast, 77 min DC
