  1. petit astronaute's rating of the film My Brother's Wedding

    (2K | 81 minutes long director's re-cut from 2007)

  2. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film My Brother's Wedding

    Un filme modesto pero de un total disfrute. Burnett presenta a un protagonista rebelde, conformista, siempre renegando de la gloria ajena, aunque con una humanidad, un carisma y simpatía sin igual. Es un filme sobre amistad, tema que desata esa realidad sórdida que se contempla por momentos con humor y otros con drama. Es también la boda, el contraste entre el egoismo de un hermano, pero también un gesto conmovedor.

  3. msmichel's rating of the film My Brother's Wedding

    director's cut.... Burnett's first feature since 'Killer of Sheep' was a lesser affair at best and was trimmed down to this version by the director after its' initial release. Story of a drifting young man caught between his responsibilities towards his brother's wedding into a family he despises and the funeral of a good friend who had recently been released from jail. Performances mostly amateurish but honest.

  4. José Neves's rating of the film My Brother's Wedding

    Cinematography by Charles Burnett.

  5. Hani's rating of the film My Brother's Wedding

    The screenplay and the editing are wonderful.

  6. Thomas Clancy's rating of the film My Brother's Wedding

    The great strength of Burnett's films is his refusal to indulge in either a romanticized or miserablist aesthetic as he represents urban Black life. Neorealism never worked better outside (or within, in my opinion) Italy. The devastating tenderness of the moments in this film, captured in unique and beautiful angles, I would recommend to all cinephiles, but especially those who appreciate a slow, poetic cinema.

  7. Kyle Lewis's rating of the film My Brother's Wedding

    Wanted to like it more but the performances were to weak and over wrought.

  8. Greg's rating of the film My Brother's Wedding

    This film is very under-appreciated.
