Rating:
R
After.Life is a disturbing vision of the journey into the hereafter while not being sure if you are even dead. Agnieszka Wojtowicz-Vosloo directs this darkly rich story that tests the boundaries of the psyche when faced with one's own death. Christina Ricci stars as Anna Taylor who wakes, after a terrible car accident, in a troubling state. Her body is being prepared for funeral by Eliot Deacon (Liam Neeson), the funeral director in the facility where she awoke. After being convinced by Eliot that he can see and hear her although she is dead, Anna must come to grips with the knowledge that Eliot can help her in her journey to the afterlife. She struggles with this knowledge and begins a process of trying to accept her condition and what it means. Paul Coleman (Justin Long), Anna's boyfriend, has suspicions about Eliot from his meetings with him and begins to seek answers. With the funeral nearing, Paul races to find the truth, while Anna draws closer to reconciling with her new truth and moving on.moreless

    The afterlife is not, however, nearly as deadly or as ghastly as the movie itself, an undertaking so tortured that it digs a deeper grave with every passing scene.
