Uncle Douglas

Uncle Douglas

Uncle Douglas is a BBC nine minute short that I would assume is British, except there’s a reference to Capetown, so maybe it’s set in South Africa.

Anyway, it’s a black comedy about a decidedly dysfunctional family consisting of a widower single father and his two teenage children, and his brother-in-law and sister-in-law who come by for a visit.

Themes include homosexuality, infidelity, incest, necrophilia, and bestiality, so plenty of fun for the whole family.

Uncle Douglas is outrageous enough to be funny in places, but it’s a decidedly lightweight affair. It’s worth the nine minute investment to watch, but it’s nothing special.
