Aftermath (1994)

A heart beating. A woman screaming. Blood.

Such ends the life of a young woman. A young woman we shall get to know well.

There's no dialogue - not just hardly any dialogue, as in Trouble Every Day, but literally no dialogue whatsoever. No single word is uttered throughout the whole movie. Blessed silence, leaving us to Sound and Sight... and Imagination.

Suffice it to say, this is not a movie for the faint of heart. If you like sick underground flicks like that, prepare for a mercilessly beautiful movie - achingly beautiful in its simplicity and exposé. If you don't like "sick" movies... I suggest you find something else to watch together with your bunch of friends on your birthday party.

Aftermath is a brilliant movie that deserves to be seen by a wider audience. Granted, today's audience is made up of kids who would screetch around... but still. I totally approve of this movie. One of my favourites.

11/10 pieces of cloth used for brain tissue.

  1. aftermath; a short, only 30 minutes. not a single spoken word. plays in a morgue. cold, sterile, clinical. very very disturbing. and i'm usually one to revel in disturbing shit. inform yourself before you watch it. i was hesitating even to mention it here ("here" being were i usually post my little movie reviews). i would nonetheless give it 4.5/5, if for nothing else than the way it coheres so wonderfully.

    i must add that i was a little disappointed not to see a full review of this one by you. of course you've told me much about it already, and i do understand your reticence to talk about this movie publicly, but i do enjoy your writing quite a bit...
