Watching Mr. Tillman as he cheerfully embraces sobriety to please his son, and is rebuffed by his former street pals for doing so, we see a poignant meditation on how our expectations of loved ones can become a burden that not everyone can carry.
What's powerful and interesting about "In My Father's House" is the way so much goodwill and urging are tested in Che's personal life.
Though it brings limited insight to the problem of absent fathers in the black community, "In My Father's House" tells a story of loneliness, abandonment, anger, and joy that all can relate to.
"In My Father's House" offers lots of interesting raw material, but it could use a disinterested observer's remix.
[In My Father's House] could not have come at a better time.
The result is a film whose exploration of responsibility and addiction will interest viewers who've never heard of Smith.
[IMFH] is a beautifully haunting film about the cycles that we find ourselves in. Its both hilarious and heartbreaking moments really shine light on the affects of absentee parents, drug and alcohol abuse, as well as homelessness in the Black community.
A brave, personal, introspective exploration of a phenomenon that has no easy solution.
It's neither as hopeful nor heartbreaking as it might first appear.
Has vulnerability and a few laughs. But a story about reconnecting shouldn't seem so uninterested in filling in the gaps.
The movie's message, if any? If you're a successful rap star, you might want to think twice before returning to the ghetto to track down the deadbeat dad you never knew. .
Che's mission to lift his father up. . .intimately demonstrates [how] health care, education and supportive housing. . .help a motivated man gain confidence and his life.
