Mistaken For Strangers (2013)

Recently watched: the frontman of a successful indie rock band invites his dead-beat brother to be a tour roadie and make a documentary along the way… it doesn’t sound like the most promising premise and for the first half of its running time, Mistaken For Strangers is everything you would expect. Tom Berninger completely fails to meet his responsibilities as an assistant tour manager and the majority of his footage is clips of band members looking like they really wish he wasn’t around. After Tom gets fired from his roadie job though, the movie turns into something much more interesting, as he returns home, interviews his parents and eventually moves in with brother Matt to get the film finished. In the end it’s mostly a tale of brotherly love, growing older and frustrated dreams, with a few behind-the-scenes shots of The National along the way. If that sounds appealing, give it a try. “Having Matt as my older brother sucks… because he’s a rock star, and I am not. And it has always been that way.”
