  1. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film The Funeral

    Dramatic & frenetic, this film represents well FERRARA's style: theatrical, religious, sexual, of an infinite blackness, and served by an inspired casting. With BAD LIEUTENANT, a summit. === Dramatique & frénétique, ce film représente bien le style de FERRARA : théatral, religieux, sexuel, d'une noirceur infinie, toujours servi par un casting inspiré et des ruptures de rythme. Avec BAD LIEUTENANT, un sommet.

  2. J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film The Funeral

    This is quite bleak, full of unsympathetic characters, all of them. Without exception. It makes it really difficult to watch. The cast, on paper, is tremendous but unfortunately no emotional feel is connectable to them. At times even boring for a mobster movie. Christopher Walken sucks. Disappointing.

  4. Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Funeral

    What I liked about it was the lack of myth-making and the excellent performances, particularly Chris Penn, who owns this movie. Walken gives the same performance over and over in his movies. Unfortunately the violence is predictable even when it isn't.

  5. El Biffo's rating of the film The Funeral

    A great film, great script and brilliant actors that all click perfectly, raising the bar to a level that is achieved when great actors are beyond the point of just making a movie-they are performing for each other. And there's the film's essence, that addresses the ultimate question: the nature of "right" vs. "wrong". Is it wrong to kill? Society condones killing...if there's a good reason. What's a good reason???

  6. Samuel T.'s rating of the film The Funeral

    Opens with Billie Holiday's version of GLOOMY SUNDAY aka The Hungarian Suicide Song, which basically sets the tone for the next 99 minutes. That cast?! A most sobering shockwave from an auteur fatale.

  7. thomasjeff16's rating of the film The Funeral

    Grim, nasty, and violent. Scathingly spectacular performances from the dreamy cast. Bonus points for casting some of the actors that would later appear on the Sopranos.

  9. c5000's rating of the film The Funeral

    I find Ferrara's criminal world more plausible and better constructed than Scorsese's... maybe thats why people tend to like more Scorsese

  10. Kays Vanderest's rating of the film The Funeral

    An intimate, powerful and emotional gangster film. Ferrara's use of violence is unlike any others.

  12. criminalmovies's rating of the film The Funeral

    Chris Penn, Christopher Walken, Vincent Gallo, Benicio Del Toro, Annabella Sciorra, Isabella Rossellini...a ridiculous number of great performances. A different kind of mobster film, the criminal lifestyle is passed down along with serious psychological problems. The difference in how the three brothers deal with this legacy, makes an interesting conflict. Nobody's hands are clean and the past keeps hanging around.

  13. Roger Da Silva João's rating of the film The Funeral

    Chris Penn and Chris Walken are so good in it... cheers to the Chrisses, hehehe.

  15. Brandon Greene's rating of the film The Funeral

    Very underrated Ferrara film, and a real dream cast to boot. Chris Penn delivers his definitive performance, IMO, and the finale is truly shocking. Solid performances from Benicio, Gallo, and Walken, not to mention a strong female character in Sciorra (atypical of the Ferrara films I've seen). As far as gangster films, this one has real heart and depends less on action than on sheer character study.
