This movie, part documentary examines the phenomena of death. The movie begins when an accident victim is brought to the hospital and while being she slips in and out, she wakes up long enough to tell the doctors to let her go cause she is going to a better place. So the doctor who treated her decides to explore death and with discussions with his two colleagues, he comes to an understanding about death. While encountering other persons who died and how the experience affects them. Written by
Very campy, very middle-American, and toxically beige - even the disco scene - this Sunn Classics presentation attempts a sledgehammer argument that there IS life after death. They provide us with a Nice Woman to insist on this at every opportunity, and for good measure deniers are shown to be self-deluding fools. Heaven is a foggy day on a sound stage, hell is like mud wrestling with flames, but the only person who comes near the latter is this jilted wife who took too many downers. Maybe they let the pimp go to heaven as a kind of apology for the jive-turkey dialogue the poor guy is shovelled - before his conversion, that is, when he's obliged to smile beatifically at everyone. Shave a full half hour off this one and...well it would still be insufferable, but it would be a half hour shorter.
