My Brother's Wedding Reviews
"My Brother's Wedding" depicts a working class African American milieu that is still rarely seen in movies today. Ironically enough, in this world, there is upward mobility and downward mobility(Soldier has a certain outlaw charm and charisma about him) but moving sideways or not at all like Pierce seems expert at is definitely frowned upon. But as insightful as that is, the movie suffers from a fractured narrative that can be frustrating at times.(This review and rating refer to the 2007 director's cut.) Even the ending that desperately tries to bring everything together, can also feel more than a little forced.
I love the girls he got for these films.
simply put, this was really good movie completely destroyed by horrible, laughable acting.
Also tonight, I saw his short films: Several Friends, The Horse and When It Rains on TCM's tribute to Burnett and I gotta say I've found yet another celluloid hero.
