The Afterlight harks back to a pre-modern romantic tradition.
26 November 2011 | by See all my reviews

The Afterlight, a deeply resonant film, harks back to a pre-modern Romantic tradition. It is an ode to nature and its mysterious expressive powers that stand in for the stunted emotional lives of the characters. At the center of the film is a parable told by the character played by Rip Torn, full of portent but which is never explained at any point in the film. Only later do you realize therein lies the virtue of the film: the mysterious will remain mysterious. You will enjoy the experience of watching the vibrating, shimmering surface of the world - things, leaves, clouds, the mewing of cows, the aftermath of an eclipse; they stay with you for a while.
