On The Count of Three review, Sundance 2021: “Jerrod Carmichael finds tenderness and humor in desolation”


Jerrod Carmichael’s directorial debut plays to his strengths. The filmmaker is best known for his ability to find humor in the darkest of subjects, and in On The Count of Three he mines pitch-black laughs out of two depressed friends with a suicide pact. 

Carmichael plays Val, who ostensibly has his life together but cannot bear the thought of living it. Having decided to end it all, he springs his best friend Kevin (Christopher Abbott) out of a mental institution where he is recovering following his most recent suicide attempt. Their reasons for killing themselves are different but there is a tender sweetness in their decision to go out together.
