The Living Wake- May 27th

The Living Wake (2007)
English- Dark Comedy
Rated “PG-13”
Runtime- 91 min.
dir. Sol Tryon

I’m kind of sad that I can’t spend as much time as I would like talking about some of these movies, so please do not dismiss my terseness as a result of a lack of care.

Story/Writing: 1.5/2

A really great story about an eccentric’s last day alive.  Good, but could be tied together better.

Acting: 1.5/2

The leads you see on the poster are good, but the rest of the cast is a little light on overall acting ability.

Photography/Set: 1/2

A little low-end on the production value side, but the shooting style keeps things interesting enough.

Sound/FX: 1.5/2

A fairly good soundtrack, with some oddly timed musical bits at two points in the film.

Misc: 1.5/2

I definitely felt fulfilled at the end, regardless of the ups and downs throughout.


Good for lovers of spunky dark comedies with very unique flavors.
