OF MY FATHER
A sardonic, morbid, uniquely
inspired film-within-a-film with a stand-out ensemble cast, spot-on dialogue
and even a touch of genuine sentiment, In Memory of My Father redefines
the tiring dysfunctional family “dramedy.” Granting his father’s wish to
film the ailing patriarch’s dying day, youngest son Chris (Director Christopher
Jaymes) makes a lukewarm effort to film between his angst-filled twenty-something
antics. Meanwhile, brother Jeremy (Six Feet Under’s Jeremy Sisto) drops
Ecstasy and speculates as to whether his wife is a lesbian while eldest
brother Matt (Matt Keeslar) tests the sexual boundaries of the family’s
inner-circle. Occasionally, they remember the recently deceased (decomposing
upstairs) and appear briefly melancholy or belt out a heartfelt rendition
of “Daddy’s Dead.” A hilariously scathing commentary, Jaymes’ infectious
feature debut was a Jury Award winner at CineVegas.
