Movie Review....After.lifeA Story by bob, small b. aka invs
this is a 2009 movie i somehow missed when it came out. it's the story of a young woman (christina ricci) who is killed in a car accident and who's sent to a funeral home run by mortician, liam neeson. the problem is, ricci's character doesn't know she's dead and neeson's character has the gift of being able to talk to the spirits of the deceased in order to usher them into eternity. so, much of the movie is conversations between the two of them. he, trying to convince her that she's really dead, and her not buying the story. somewhere along the line, we start to believe that maybe she is right and he's some sort of serial killer who buries people alive. add her boyfriend, justin long, to the mix, who is also not convinced she's actually dead, and you have a pretty interesting movie. not a great film, but the acting is far above average, the story is original, and it makes you think. good combination. oh... one other thing that may be a plus for some and a negative for others..if nudity offends you, don't watch this film. seems the dead folks in a mortuary don't wear many clothes. christina ricci's never looked better. even if she is dead.

Aboutmy name's bob. small 'b'. a hold-over from my e.e. cummings stage of writing. i just never went back to reclaim the capital B. or the capital letters to begin paragraphs and sentences. no significance.. more..
