Make me proud

Not since "John Dies at the End" have I been able to figure out the ending of a film from the title. Ivan (Gary Stretch) is terrible. He kills his one son Chester (Chester Rushing) and hits the other one in the side of the head so he can't hear out of both ears. Asher (Joe Anderson) grows up deaf and decides to be a mute because he would talk funny. When dad is released early from prison, Asher is out for revenge. And there is a girl (Candace Smith) involved. The film won a number of awards for being the best indie out of Louisiana. It was professionally shot, however there were a number of things I didn't like. The first was the metaphoric and poetic language monologue that was fitted into the script by someone with less than the education to speak/write that way. Good writing, but didn't fit the character. Now for a deaf guy, I assumed he could read lips and sometimes read lips when he wasn't looking at them. And how did a deaf guy know to turn around when a gun was fired? I guess no one caught it in post or didn't care. The whole situation seemed like over reaction. I am sure grindhouse zealots might find a gem here. It seemed a bit tedious to me. Guide: F-word. Sex, rape, nudity (Frances Reagan James + uncredited)

Fathers have always taught their sons to replace them

This movie hits me on a very personal level. It resembles much of my relationship with my father. I never knew why my father started or why he couldn't stop drinking. I am certain that not many IMDb users can relate to violent childhood memories but this film goes beyond that. The poetic voice-over, the spectacular scenery, resembles Terrence Malick's doing and the violence on a Black & White screen, punctuated at key points in the story, resembles Quentin Tarantino's work. I don't have much to say about this gem, but that it captures how it feels to be born in a family with a violent past and how good men chose to make different decisions in life. It's spot on. Uncomfortably so. Yet beautiful. Thank you, Sean Brosnan

A Brutal and Heartbreaking Tale of Southern Gothic Revenge

When I think of revenge in cinema I think of "Oldboy" (2003), "Dead Man's Shoes" (2004), "Blue Ruin" (2014), "Lady Vengeance" (2004), "Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance" (2002), "Django Unchained" (2012), "Kill Bill" (2003;2004) "Gangs of New York" (2002), and even "John Wick" (2014). Now after seeing this masterpiece of revenge, "My Father Die" is now on that list. "My Father Die" is as you already know, a deep southern Gothic revenge film, and is the directorial debut of Sean Brosnan. The film starts off with two brothers (Asher and Chester) walking around talking about sex and meeting up with a girl (Nana) so that Chester can have sex with her. As Asher keeps on watch for the two his father (Ivan) pounces when he's not looking and hits him so hard upside the head that he ruptures his eardrums. Ivan then confronts Chester and beats him to death in a fit of rage while the recently deaf Asher watches. Jump twenty years later where Asher is taking care of his overly obese mother who does nothing but sit on her bed and watch the local church sermon. Ivan is recently released from prison and Asher plans to exact his revenge upon his fallen brother. And so ensues one of the best revenge films I've seen. The film is so well acted by the entire cast, mostly the three main stars Joe Anderson (Asher), Candace Smith (Nana), and Gary Stretch (Ivan). These three actors did a magnificent job bringing their characters to life. Joe Anderson was magnificent as he never said a word in the film and yet you could empathize with his character so much. Gary Stretch was unbelievable, if you thought he was bad in "Dead Man's Shoes", you have no idea how much more bad he is in this film. Stretch is just absolutely brutal and brings so much tension and suspense in every scene he is in. Brosnan's direction is fantastic, he never loses control of the brutal and religious aspects the movie brings. He developed the characters so well and took time to really make them feel real. The cinematography is overall very good, when it comes down to the cinematography of a very low budget film I'm not so harsh on it considering that money is not very abundant, but the film looks beautiful either way. Throughout the film I couldn't help but see Brosnan's satire on Southern religion. I am not completely sure if it was intentional, but if it was good job. Periodically in the film a painting of Saturn eating his children is seen, which not only symbolizes the characters in the film but also gives the film a religious quality to it which I thought was interesting. I honestly don't know what else to say, this is a great revenge film with unique characters that we empathize and despise, a great story, acting, and direction. Sean Brosnan debuted with a powerhouse of a film and I will without a doubt be looking forward to what he has in store next.
