Aged 80 Clint Eastwood has made a film that is completely different in style, tone and structure from anything he has delivered before.

Hereafter confronts a topic that could have descended into mawkish, mystical hokum, but not in Eastwood's no-nonsense, uncynical hands. He looks at death, and beyond, with clear, open, inquisitive eyes.

Food for thought, this movie may provide... but it fails to linger long after the end credits roll.

More concerned with loneliness in this life than anything that happens after death

Superficially satisfying but oftentimes disappointing, "Hereafter" focuses on three major stories, one of which works far better than the other two.

What is terrific about Eastwood is that he has a real cleanness in his approach to filmmaking and there isn't this claptrap of sentimentality surrounding it.

Hereafter is worth taking seriously because, finally, it's about taking care to live decently -- not piously, or proudly, but honestly, in the here and now.

An unusual but absolutely absorbing work which bravely tackles the big questions with thoughtfulness and real emotion.
February 2, 2011
With Eastwood stubbornly determined to make one of the quietest films you'll ever see and Matt Damon restrained like never before, the Hereafter could either leave you thinking...or seriously underwhelmed.

This is a consoling, romantic, inspirational movie in the mid-1940s manner of Portrait of Jennie and A Guy Named Joe.
January 28, 2011
A thoughtful and sensitive work, and while it may not convince the sceptics that there is something hereafter, it offers something to think about.
