Overlooked DVD of the month - IN MEMORY OF MY FATHER

IN MEMORY OF MY FATHER is an anarchic black comedy exposing the neuroses and vanities of a Hollywood family on the day of their father's death. The conceit is that the domineering patriarch is extending his control even after death thanks to his egotistical desire to have the whole thing captured on handicam by his sons. As the camera rolls, we see the dead man's absurdly young wife (Judy Greer) twitter on about shopping and try to pick up his elder son. We'll see the middle son (Jeremy Sisto) become paranoid that his wife is having a lesbian affair.

IN MEMORY OF MY FATHER played some fests in 05/06 and went on limited released in the UK and US last summer. It's available on DVD.
