The new rock documentary "Mistaken for Strangers" is alternately hilarious, cringe-inducing, inspiring, depressing, stupid and profoundly intelligent.The documentary, which opened in theaters last week and is available on-demand, is directed by Tom Berninger, brother to The National's lead singer, Matt. The band is made up of two sets of brothers -- multi-instrumentalists Bryce and Aaron Dessner and rhythm section Scott and Bryan Devendorf -- and the elder Berninger, and Matt Berninger saw a kind of symmetry in hiring Tom onto the road crew during The National's "High Violet" world tour.Turns out Tom and Matt, who is nine years older, are complete opposites.Tom retreats to Cincinnati and his parents' home where some of the film's most difficult -- and honest -- moments come when he asks his parents to explain why Matt has so much success where he has none.
