Digging Through The Darkness (2018) DOC NYC 2018
Uneven and ultimately just okay documentary doesn’t quite work. While there is a compelling story here director Ben Niles never quite gets the tone right. Is this a film about the music or about the abuse? I’m not sure. While the music is always there, the story of the abuse, felt to me, kept at a distance as something that happened while other things were happening. This isn't to take away from what happened only how it is presented left me unsure about how to react because I never emotionally connected.
DIGGING THROUGH THE DARKNESS plays later today at DOC NYC
