    This has quickly become one of my favorite films. Mike O' Connell and Jesse Eisenberg are both totally secure in their roles. Eisenberg's reservation is the perfect foil for O' Connell's grandstanding. Jim Gaffigan also turns in a great performance as O' Connell's father. The script is solid. It's silly while being ponderous and the ending is perfect. I'd recommend this movie to anyone.

    This is a terminally whimsical vanity project that would probably have been a chore to sit through even in its original intended format, a 20-minute stage monologue.
  2. Audiences will be either captivated or irritated, depending on their tolerance for high-concept whimsy and high-energy theatrics. By the end of the wake itself, they may be wishing Binew’s illness were running ahead of schedule.

    The Living Wake is cursed with a permanent smirk of smug self-satisfaction: It’s so delighted with itself that it leaves audiences out of the equation.
