It's not a pretty picture he paints here. But it makes you want Affleck to keep picking up that brush.

Though "Light of My Life" is a well-filmed and occasionally brutally effective piece of work, Affleck dilutes the power of the story with too many self-indulgent, patience-testing scenes.

Another dour end-of-the-world epic that fails to live up to the sum of its parts.

Bedtime stories and straightforward conversations on morality and death, including a poignant opening long take revisiting the biblical tale of Noah's ark, exhibit the screenplay's tremendous emotional depth and nuanced humanity.
