Why Don’t You Just Die!
Папа, сдохни

In this bleak and funny feature debut by Kirill Sokolov, Matvei goes on a quest to kill his girlfriend’s abusive father. Instead he stumbles into a web of allegations and attempted murder. Tarantino-like carnage ensues as father and prospective son-in-law use anything at hand to destroy the other. Filled with references to classic spaghetti westerns and contemporary Americana, this dark comedy thriller is like nothing we’ve ever seen before. A confident debut filming not for the squeamish!

Gruesome
Although the acting was good, I don’t like to see so much violence therefore I didn’t really like this film.

A must watch
Gruesome for sure, but amusing in a Tarantinoesque fashion. Not for the squeamish, but I enjoyed it.
