Uncle Howard | Review


Uncle Howard directed by Aaron Brookner

This film is epic, in a good way. What you see here is a nephew who loves his uncle and honors him in the best way possible. He honors him by showing him with his family, showing him with his lovers, shows him during his work, filming and showing the work he produced, and during his last days. During the Q&A Aaron, the nephew and director, shared a quote from Howard with us, “There’s so much beauty in the world, that’s what got me in trouble in the first place.” Howard lived his life, not the life that was necessarily expected, but the people in his life loved him for living his life, not the expected life. He did not waste any of his passions, or any of his love. The last, final scene, was very intimate. Maybe a year or two before he died of aids, he honored his agent from ICM that just died of aids by playing this song, “Sunrise” by Madonna. Well done Aaron Brookner, look forward to seeing what’s to come for this director’s career.
