It may be Viggo Mortensen’s directorial (and screenwriting) debut, but this story of a gay man trying to navigate his elderly father’s dementia (and subsequent racism, homophobia, misogyny, and general obnoxiousness) is unquestionably Lance Henriksen’s film from start to finish. Part period piece, part family drama, part super-dark comedy, it’s a tough watch at times but worth it as an appreciation of one man’s unwavering love for even the most difficult member of his family.

3.5/5 stars
