Critic Reviews for The Afterlight
It's hard to embrace this glacially paced, symbolism-heavy film's elusive - when it's not being elliptical - story about a city couple's escape to rural life.
Unfortunately, the subdued tone only adds distance, not depth, to their unstated issues.
Afterlight proceeds without much discernible plot or character development, its objects and places exuding more backstory than its people, though Rip Torn as the father of the sole male protagonist lends a certain woodsy authenticity.
Tempering the film's oppressive emotions, the cinematographer Zoë White's exquisite compositions charge leaden rain clouds and rustling branches with eerie life, and dusty indoor corners with shadowy secrets.
[This] proudly minimalist affair favors ambiguity over soap-operatics.
