“This Way Up”—Directed by Alan Smith & Adam Foulkes
This week’s Thursday Matinee showing a nine-minute short directed by Alan Smith and Adam Foulkes. The piece titled “This Way Up” features a father/son duo who own a funeral parlor. The family business takes quite a few turns for the worse as they try to get the deceased from their home to their final resting place. The film is light and comical, with some typical slapstick humor thrown in. All in all, it was an enjoyable watch. Because if you can’t laugh at death, than what can you laugh at?
