Afterimage's punishing narrative pays dividends through Andrzej Wajda's still-formidable control and a message that, while certainly grim, is undeniably worthy.

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.
This is an angry, vivid, passionate film.
Afterimage suffers from a clunky script and an overdetermined formal palette.
Wajda's loving examination of heroes has reached its logical conclusion in Afterimage, with the study of Strzemiński as unforgiving as the winter.
A brilliant, straightforward and passionate homage biopic from one dissident Polish artist to another.
Andrzej Wajda shares testament with the (bold) artist Strzemiński. [Full review in Spanish]
Impeccably photographed by Pawel Edelman (The Pianist, Ray), Afterimage is a well-told story that eschews any sort of abstraction or ambiguity.
... it is famous Polish actor Boguslaw Linda who dazzles with his hidden volcano of emotion.
Afterimage becomes a fitting capstone to a remarkable career that spanned from the 1950s into the 21st Century.
