Rapid Reviews: Zombie Island Days with the Prodigal Valentine Clyde
my #3 favorite film last year, is a good example of this). Sons is indeed narrative, but the facts are vital to understanding the emotion behind the film. While it would seem that the sex change of documentary filmmaker Kimberly Reed is the main story, it soon becomes a fascinating discussion of identity and how difficult coming home really can be not only for the titular Prodigal Son, but for the rest of the family as well. It's not perfect, but for what feels like a really genuine documentary, it's pretty damn great. B+
