Storyline

A self-proclaimed (somewhat justifiably) film legend bribes his son to document his death under the unquestioning assumption that it will be historically important. The Result; In Memory of My Father, a twisted celebration of a Hollywood family narcissistically dealing with an eventfully frustrating day, regardless of the subtly distracting centerpiece which they're forced to endure; Dad's corpse. Written by Anonymous

A serious situation surrounded by the funniest of characters, truly great!
26 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So many people set out to do one-location shoots, limit your budget, and shoot in a few days. However, few can do these things and produce a great product. They did a really great job with this one.

The acting is superb throughout the large ensemble of a cast. I really enjoyed the bathroom scene with Sisto. One of his best takes I've seen.

This movie is going to allow you to look at death and those around the death in a much different, maybe crazy at times, sort of way. I guarantee you will be entertained with laughter and just enough but not too much drama.

Excellent!
