MIFF #10: My first NOT of MIFF. Members of the Funeral was a macabre Korean film telling the backstory of three guests who attend a funeral for a young teenage boy. The disjointed film never really captured my attention properly – I drifted off to sleep at various points and so I didn’t really grasp the convoluted, interwoven story lines and the relationships between the guests. The characters were all strange or hateful and their motives and behaviours, while explained, were just one step too far removed from being believable and realistic in the circumstances.
NOT: Members of the Funeral, ACMI, Federation Square, Melbourne
