Reviews for ‘Epitaph’:

“The most stunning moment in any of the movies was the climax of Amy Coop’s ‘Epitaph’, Karl Johnson tap-dancing on his former entertainer partner’s grave. Our job was to agree the best three films.  We all named our top three films. One film ‘Epitaph’ got four votes. We were all bowled over by the final image – the story is of an old hoofer visiting the grave of a dear departed entertainer” – Larry Oliver, Bitlanders.
