'Rewind: Special Edition' [Blu-ray]
(Brian Dennehy, Hong Chau, Christine Ebersole, Lucas Jaye, et al / Blu-ray / NR / (2019) 2020 / Film Rise - MVD Visual)

Overview: Digging through the vast collection of his father's home videos, a young man reconstructs the unthinkable story of his boyhood and exposes vile abuse passed through generations.

Blu-ray Verdict: Wow! I mean, just, well, ... wow! Having now finished watching this new release from the great folks at Film Rise, I'm just so incredibly sorry to Sasha and his sister for the horrific abuse they endured, as no child should ever have to suffer in silence.

As shown here in 'Rewind,' they have brought into the light that which had been buried in darkness, and have shone a brilliant light on to the path that can lead to healing and hopefully prevention of this occurring.

I can only pray that they continue this important and worthwhile work they've done and continue lighting that path for others to find the courage to overcome these abhorrent crimes.

This was such a well-done and intimate story told in the most compelling manner. Indeed, from start to finish I found myself wholly immersed in the tale and filling with anger and rage at these monsters who betrayed this family.

The storyline was concise, direct and makes you feel connected, but also has the ability to allow your mind to forge paths of anger and repulsion against the protagonists featured.

While it can be a very difficult story to tell and some tend to carry on with melodramatic and labored points, this absolutely gets to the heart and the soul and you're immediately awash in empathy, apathy and rage for these children and hope when you're left with the closure of the final scenes.

Again, 'Rewind' is a stunning documentary and one that should be mandatory viewing for anyone who doubts this could ever happen to them/their children, because it's much easier than anyone wants to believe and within the blink of an eye, your family is thrust into a tumultuous and chaotic place from which few ever emerge unscathed.

Simply put, unflinching and uncompromising, 'Rewind' is a documentary that isn't afraid to dive deep into the issues of abuse and trauma that it explores across its relatively brief 80 minute runtime, as documentarian and main subject Sasha Neulinger delves into his own childhood and his families horrific experiences that spanned generations. This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.85:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with the Special Features of:
