Afterimage (Powidoki) (2017)
Critic Consensus: Afterimage's punishing narrative pays dividends through Andrzej Wajda's still-formidable control and a message that, while certainly grim, is undeniably worthy.

Critic Reviews for Afterimage (Powidoki)
It is a film that is heavily didactic, with extended passages of dialogue that resemble ideological communiqués. It is also stunningly well acted and painfully powerful to view.
Deliberately paced, bleak and a touch repetitive, Afterimages is a swan song from one of the greats, who, much like his subject, leaves viewers with a treatise on how to look at the world.
Wajda brings such a controlled fervor to this portrait because it's clear that, like Strzeminski, he identifies as a dissident in dangerous times.
"Afterimage" feels vividly connected to the Polish auteur's beginnings, yet also acts as the kind of haunting close that sums up a life.
Afterimage is mounted in a classical, beautifully understated style that throughout conveys the assurance of a true master.
