Obviously, death is an important topic. It is something man has dwelled on and lamented upon since the beginning of human life on Earth. Questions of why we’re here and what happens when we depart are things everyone is curious about. Film delves into the topic of death quite extensively but in the new dramedy Still Life, we get a unique perspective on death and the effects it has on loved ones. It is a movie with powerful themes, subtle beauty, and an understated and rather genius performance from British actor Eddie Marsan (Happy-Go-Lucky, The World’s End). Though a smart and thoughtful film, Still Life will almost certainly fall through the cracks and into the depths of obscurity.
