This weeks film continues the Charles Burnett season:

My Brother's Wedding
1983/2007. 85 mins, DVD. M sex scenes

Burnett's long unavailable second film (only recently completed) gives us a tragicomic portrait of a shiftless young man torn between his family, the pending nuptials of his upwardly mobile brother and his loyalty to a troublemaking, recently paroled friend.

Using non-professional actors, Burnett balances melodrama with calm observation, offering an eloquently ambivalent portrayal of the ties that bind.

"A treasure that demands to be unearthed in all its funny-sad tenderness." – Village Voice
