Death At A Funeral
Dir. Frank Oz. UK. 2007. 90mins.Death At A Funeral reprises the old formula of assembling a raucous ensemble comedy from the mourners at a respectable upper middle-class funeral that comes unwound. Dysfunction becomes delirium, fuelled here by hallucinogens and the dead man's gay lover, a dwarf. The bawdy farce then turns wholesome, offering some well-meaning lessons about tolerance.
