  • Shot in chilly, silky digital black and white, it plays with chronology in a way that seems both casual and musically precise.

  • The Day After may not be a particularly great film, but it does feel like a necessary one.

  • A lazy shoulder shrug of a movie that never bothers to work out who its characters are, what they want, or why their ostensible problems should be of interest to anyone else.

  • Hong tells the story in long and dialogue-filled takes, done in a soft black-and-white that feels like pencil drawings, to extract deep and earnest confessions with a graceful touch that shudders with the life-shaking emotions at their core.
