Real stars don’t get reality shows; they get reality movies. I Trust You to Kill Me is an odd, revealing documentary curio about how Kiefer Sutherland took a not-great indie band he manages out on tour during a break from 24 last year. At first the doc seems vain, but filmmaker Manu Boyer is appropriately skeptical of his star subject, who gets drunk, tackles a Christmas tree, and confesses a lot — sometimes stirringly — to the camera. Even when he looks like a complete dolt, Sutherland still comes off sympathetically, as a cool guy.
