It’s been ten years since Asher dragged his lanky carcass into the marshes of the bayou, occasionally killing a 12 gauge alligator to waste time. Ten years now that his elder brother was beaten to death by their father, just because he had the bad idea to soak his noodle in the same place as his unfaithful procreator. Ten fucking long years since Asher became deaf and dumb after getting a beating from dad. Since then, the latter languishes in prison. But when Asher learns that he’s just been released on parole, he saws off the barrel of his shotgun and starts training on the local barflies to prepare for the confrontation with daddy.
Inspired by the “The Playboy of the Western World” by JM Synge, Sean Brosnan’s first feature is a pretty package of Freudian themes wrapped in a grindhouse jacket. My Father Die is a tragedy as violent as it is poetic, starring a magnetic Joe Anderson (The Gray, Horns, Hercules) and a producer who is not afraid of Oedipal conflicts, a certain Pierce Brosnan!
