SXSW 2012 film review
complete coverage of SXSW Film 2012
Two brothers compete in their own private 25-event Olympics.
Film Synopsis (from SXSW.com)
Who’S It For? It’s not exactly as straight forward as it sounds. This is a very small production where the sporting events become secondary to the family issues.
Both Mark (Zissis) and Jeremy (Kelly) are competitive freaks. Sure that sounds like a lot of brothers when they get together. And sometimes it is that simple. There are some good family issues with The Do-Deca-Pentathlon. The Duplass brothers are back to their super low-budget roots.
That super low-budget sometimes hinders the film, sometimes it brings it to light in surprisingly touching ways.
Mark has a wife and son. Jeremy has poker. Both have issues. Jeremy sucks Mark into »
