Critic Reviews for The Afterlight

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (3)

It's hard to embrace this glacially paced, symbolism-heavy film's elusive - when it's not being elliptical - story about a city couple's escape to rural life.

Los Angeles Times
Top Critic

Unfortunately, the subdued tone only adds distance, not depth, to their unstated issues.

Chicago Sun-Times
Top Critic

Promises more illumination than it delivers.

Chicago Reader
Top Critic

Afterlight proceeds without much discernible plot or character development, its objects and places exuding more backstory than its people, though Rip Torn as the father of the sole male protagonist lends a certain woodsy authenticity.

Variety
Top Critic

Tempering the film's oppressive emotions, the cinematographer Zoë White's exquisite compositions charge leaden rain clouds and rustling branches with eerie life, and dusty indoor corners with shadowy secrets.

Top Critic

[This] proudly minimalist affair favors ambiguity over soap-operatics.

Time Out New York
Top Critic

The director-writer-editor pair, and cinematographer White, show a sheer love of moviemaking that often makes their film a joy to watch.

Movie City News

A quietly intense, engrossing and intelligent drama brimming with haunting imagery and poignant lyricism.
