Grief Review


Weak
Horrible production values and some of the most stilted acting I've ever seen pretty much sink Grief completely -- and that's in the first two minutes, before we even get to the opening credits. The next 79 minutes don't offer much else in the way of memorable filmmaking, plot, or performance, either.

Bonus points for putting a few capable actors like Illeana Douglas and Lucy Gutteridge (who hasn't made a film since) in the mix, but it would've been much brighter to craft a movie around someone like one of them instead of the talent-free drag queen Kent Fuher (channeling Divine).

When boss Jo (Fuher) announces she's moving abroad, there's a power grab for her job. But the bulk of the story concerns gay writer Mark (Craig Chester), who's distraught over work and home life and threatening to jump off the building when he's not providing "witty" voice-over for the movie.
