The Funeral

Time Out says

Walken, Penn and Gallo are brothers in 1930s New York. When one is killed, the lives of the other two quickly unravel. This stylishly shot mobster comedy-thriller has a flashback structure of such complexity - it starts with the funeral and works backwards - that the makers themselves seem confused by it. There are some distracting plot strands (for instance, Gallo's sudden embrace of workers' rights) and a few too many nods to The Godfather, but this is still a brilliant, very visceral piece of film-making with an infectious strain of morbid humour.
