    An eloquently shot and closely observed documentary about a poor family in modern-day Indonesia.

    Leonard Retel Helmrich's third documentary about the same Indonesian family is a dazzler in at least a couple ways.

    Engrossing, poetic and often very funny, "Position," like its predecessors, uses the lens of a single family to view the tumult of an entire country.

    As with his previous pics about the brood, Dutch-Indonesian helmer Leonard Retel Helmrich deploys an expressionistic, quasi-soap-opera approach to produce striking results, thanks especially to use of Steadicam. But the protagonists seem to be playing to the cameras more this time round, making "Stars" a less charming effort than earlier installments.
