Directed by Jonathan Caouette | 2004
"This self-portrait of an artist offers concrete support for the idea... that art can heal some of the wounds that life inflicts."
—A.O. Scott, The New York Times

Still unlike anything before or since, Jonathan Caouette’s mesmerizing, twenty-years-in-the-making docu-essay is an ultra-personal mélange of 8mm home movies, phone messages, reenactments, and head-spinning surreal freakouts documenting his tumultuous coming of age with a mentally ill mother. Frequently devastating, yet shot through with love for the troubled woman at its center, Tarnation remains “a remarkable film, immediate, urgent, angry, poetic and stubbornly hopeful” (Roger Ebert).
