Inheritance: Review. By Richard Schertzer.

In Matt Moyer and Amy Toensing’s heart-wrenching documentary, the filmmakers follow a young boy named Curtis and his family in a drug-addled and impoverished community in Ohio over the course of many years.

The movie sees a struggling family that has been riddled with addiction, poverty and painstaking disappointment as they attempt to do their best in the situation that they have been raised in. Looking at the film alone, the odds have been stacked against this family and they seem to be another statistic in the making.



Just for starters, the cinematography of the film is incredibly noteworthy and is almost astonishing to look at. The beauty of its impoverished landscapes surround the audience with such vivid imagery that the people watching the film have no choice but to try and root for our subject.

Understanding the point of view of this family who are doing everything that they can to survive in an environment where they are having a grader and harder time with maintaining their family and kick their growing addictions to dirty substances.

It’s amazing that the filming takes place over a decade or so. That way audiences see how much the main characters have grown over the years and what has happened to them. It almost reminds me of Richard Linklater’s magnum opus film “Boyhood” where the character naturally got older rather than hiring new actors or using makeup.

This movie proves that making a documentary requires an expensive look at the subject and a lot of respect for said subject and/or person that must be handled with love and care.
