Your Best and Favourite Funeral/Cemetery Scene In A Movie...
Hi,

Doing some research.

What are some of your favourite or best
FUNERAL/CEMETERY scene in a movie?????

Here is mine --
The Comedian / Edward Blake funeral in Zack Snyder's Watchmen.
And the brilliant cinematorgraphy of the cemetery. And hold on it
gets better -- the director decided to add the music of Simon and Art
Garfunkle's 'THE SOUND OF SILENCE' over this moving, sad but
perfectly directed/written scene....

And yes it was raining in this scene...LOL..

To the future....

In a movie, I dunno. But overall, the pilot of Six Feet Under.

I remember spotting a gaffe in some low budget film where the actress who was playing the decendant had a twitch in her shoes during the funeral scene. Funny as hell, albeit unintentionally so.

Size 6 Foot Under? :D :|

From memory, The Wrong Box was one long funeral scene and very funny.

More recently, Death at a Funeral had some very good scenes.

Mr. Brown is saying some words at his father's funeral. I was rollin'. But I caught the play from the beginning. I hope it's as funny to you just jumping into this scene.

You gotta jump to about 4:45, where it gets going.

Oh yes.

"Whose funeral is it?"

"Yours, sucka!"

Or something to that effect.

Not certain about this one but there has to be something great in "The Loved One" right?

Was Rod Steiger hilarious in that or what?

Talking about funerals and key cemetery scenes.

That's my kind of movies and parties.

Would not miss it.

Okay let's have a THE GRADUATE fight dance at the cemetery with Don Knotts...

Empire forum is deadly ****.

The camera spinning around and around the grave markers, following Tuco (Eli Wallach) in The Good, The Bad, The Ugly.

I remember my first hash pipe.


Unless of course you're referring to "Mr. Phipps' Last Tango in Paris" where Mr. Phipps solves mysteries at a motel inhabited by the ghost of his deceased wife. Don Knotts gave the performance of his life. It might be on DVD or laser disc.

(I really wanted to work in the plotline of the Graduate and You Got Served, but I had to go with LTIP)


Speaking of LTIP


Actually the scene with Marlon Brando talking to his deceased wife in her casket... That's sort of a funeral scene. Powerful.

Hey Ire,
...this is funny.
Do you write for TV or "underground" hip/quirky/dyno internet TV shows?

I like your layering style of themes...

And that Don Knotts' movie -- saw it only once, but one day I will hunt down a copy...

Hey if I was a movie/tv executive, I might ask you
for some samples or test you out in 'the writing room"...

Cheers,

Looking forward to more posts by Ire

Cheers again...

Hmm, detecting sarcasm, but I'll bite... Thanks, Ben. I'm not attached to any series or medium, but I prefer to work in sub-blog post-Twitter-You Tube BitTorrent media.

comic scenes:

LA Story: Rick Moranis as the gravedigger

Charade: funeral of Audrey Hepburn's husband, where the members of the gang show up; great way to introduce the characters

Ab Fab: Jennifer Saunders drunkenly staggering around the cemetery at her father's funeral and falling into an open grave

Haven't seen it for a while, but the family feuding at the cemetery in Stuart Saves His Family was a funny scene

Paint Your Wagon had an amusing punchline to a funeral...

Read books.
Don't watch movies.
Burn all the DVDs in the world.

I am just wondering what Fahrenheit 452-454 were about. I know 451 was about burning books, and apparently 455 is about burning DVDs.
What is there left to burn, the new shuffle ipods?
