  • The movie feels more like a thriller and a mystery than a documentary. Perhaps someday, someone will be inspired to dramatize this astonishing story. show more

  • What makes The Flat mesmerizing is its wealth of historical detail. What makes it universal is what it says about families everywhere - that children, being children, don't want to know what their parents are up to, and that grown-ups, being human, don't want to credit troubling facts that conflict with what they need to believe. show more

  • Ultimately, this is not a film about one specific event but about human nature - most notably, the instincts toward denial and delusion, acceptance and forgiveness. From start to finish, revelations abound. show more

    breathtaking, the film was predictable - the silence between generations - and the pain within - during and post discovery of the mysteries of the past - and who was present - and who was present while in mental, emotional absentia. difficult to watch unfold; what a waste of all still \'absent\'
