Reviews
ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review Is this a documentary based on truth that has been given shape, like "Nanook of the North," or a documentary that's fiction in the form of truth, like "Best of Show"? Hard to be sure. I do believe we are really looking at the members of Andrew Wagner's family, and "The Talent Given Us" is a documentary in this sense: It is a record of these people doing these things. Whether they "really" did them is beside the point. They did them for the film, so if they hadn't done them before, they've done them now.

ReviewSource San Francisco Chronicle
Review Jonathan Caouette's "Tarnation" (2003), in which the filmmaker dealt with his mother's mental illness, pushed the envelope in a similar way, but the director's anguish seemed genuine and helped justify the proceedings. Wagner's family has its problems, to be sure, but despite the psychodrama everyone seems mighty happy to be on camera, and the stakes just don't seem as high as for Caouette.Wagner and family are clearly trying to work something out here, which is admirable, but some viewers may wonder why they're expected to care.

Ella Taylor, L.A. Weekly A cross between a road movie, a documentary and a therapy session.
Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly A film of uncommon originality.
Manohla Dargis, The New York Times Delightful...flesh-and-blood characters as richly conceived as those in any novel.
