Jeremy (Mark Kelly) and Mark (Steve Zissis) are two bickering brothers,
who have had a contentiously violent relationship their entire lives.
In an effort to see who can rightfully dub himself "the better
brother," they concocted an event called "The Do-Deca-Pentathlon" when
they were young, and held twenty-five events to see who could win more
and earn the title. During the "underwater challenge," the boys'
grandfather thought they were drowning and his interference pulled the
plug on the event, which was never finished.
Since then, they have been estranged, until the boys' mother, Alice
(Julie Vorus), holds a party for Mark's birthday where Jeremy is
invited and surprisingly shows up. Both men, now in their early
thirties, have gone on to become modestly successful. Jeremy, who is
still single, lives off of poker tournaments he frequently plays, and
Mark is married to the lovely Stephanie (Jennifer Lafleur), with their
only son (Reid Williams).
Shortly after his arrival, Jeremy pens a contract, which, when signed
by both brothers, okays them to partake in a revival of "The
Do-Deca-Pentathlon" idea, where they start all twenty-five events over
again from scratch. The stakes, if there were any, remain the same,
along with the title, and it shows that these brothers haven't forgot
about the "importance" of a sophomoric title or the compelling feeling
they get from winning and triumphing over the other sibling. That is
their way of saying "I love you." In order to keep quiet about the
event, the brothers try all they possibly can to hide their events from
their family, especially Stephanie, who is sick of the childish idea.
Mark has been troubled quite a bit in his past, with high anxiety and
psychiatric treatment, that begin to come forth when the event starts.
He is not in proper shape to be doing this event. In fact, neither of
them are. They are far too old for childish activities.
The Do-Deca-Pentathlon was written and directed by the Duplass
brothers, Jay and Mark, who have sort of pioneered the genre of
mumblecore, where amateur actors immerse themselves into humanly flawed
characters, accompanied with naturalistic dialog and recognizable
cinematography. They brothers continue with their theme or sibling
disconnect, which was the main point of focus with their last feature,
the wonderful and underrated Jeff, Who Lives at Home. This is their
return to mumblecore, by definition, where as their two previous
features included rather mainstream actors, yet still kept the rules of
the genre in place - a featured bonus I hope they continue to do.
The only problem I can see is the same one I found with their two most
recent efforts; the film's reliance on dead in the water style. The
Duplass brothers love to utilize quick camera zooms during certain
shots, to either put emphasis on something or just make it more
apparent to the viewer. It's a distractingly unnecessary addition that
leaves a lot to be desired. The brothers already have their own style.
They don't need to perpetuate it even more than they already have.
The picture is concise at only seventy-six minutes, and its leads have
the chemistry and the charm to carry the picture all the way through
(especially Zissis, who has worked with Jay and Mark since their second
feature, Baghead). The Do-Deca-Pentathlon illustrates a quirky and
childish game, and the characters involved, with heart and soul, never
condescending to the level of parody or ignorance that would've
resulted in a cheaply made independent film. The Duplass brothers are
too smart to fall in that territory.
Starring: Mark Kelly, Steve Zissis, Jennifer Lafleur, Julie Vorus, and
Reid Williams. Directed by: Jay and Mark Duplass.
