February 7, 2014
A thrilling combination of drama, near-science-fiction, suspense, coming-of-age agita, and intellectual exploration of ideas. Pity it derails itself.
February 6, 2014
Both smugly clever and at times distastefully clueless.
February 6, 2014
A thought experiment about who gets picked to survive a nuclear Armageddon. Intelligent dialog about utilitarian ethical choices.

Movies that privilege ideas over action are rare enough that it's hard not to wish them well, and After the Dark gets off to a good start...But its surprise ending isn't quite as surprising as it ought to be
February 6, 2014
An unusually creative and ambitious film of ideas that offers so much more than its forgettable title and sensationalized publicity may imply.
February 6, 2014
Doesn't end convincingly, but the opening two acts are stimulating enough to carry the viewing experience, capturing the cutthroat nature of endurance and the brutal reality of judgment in desperate times.

This ambitious teen-oriented fantasy is like taking a university philosophy course in The Twilight Zone.

A shaggy dog story but an intriguing and frequently beautiful one.
February 6, 2014
This is a flawed film, but it's also one that's not completely without merit.
