Once there, Eddie is confronted with the revelation that he himself is a father which forces him to deal with the past he has always avoided.

  • Shot in a loose, deadpan, improvisational style by writer-director-star Clarke, the film is propped up by a strong performance from Dennehy, whose ursine presence sustains the film through its wobbly passages.

  • Larry Clarke's debut effort as writer-director is an affecting dramedy about a family dealing with a fading paterfamilias.

  • The high-wire tonal balancing act proves a little wobbly at times, resulting in a film that feels less than the sum of its parts. But some of those parts work very well, providing moments of uncomfortable hilarity and genuine poignancy.

  • Depressing story about death, but the cast manages to engage the audience and keep them attuned to the different nuances of the film.

    September 27, 2019 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…
  • 3 Days With Dad does not deliver to the audience what it promises, presenting an exercise in patience that goes one day to long.

  • Casting is superb. Production values are excellent. [Larry] Clarke knows this story, he knows the characters, he knows his audience...Clarke knew when to step back and say "enough is enough" and just let 3 Days With Dad live and laugh.
