‘Hereafter’ is the latest film directed by Clint Eastwood, who in recent years directed ‘Invictus’, ‘Gran Torino’, ‘Changeling’, ‘Mystic River’, and Best Picture winner ‘Million Dollar Baby’. The film stars Matt Damon and Bryce Dallas Howard, and is about three seemingly unrelated storylines that share the common themes of death and the afterlife. Now, I realize that sounds like it could be scary and suspenseful, especially since it’s opening a week before Halloween, but it’s neither scary nor suspenseful. It’s also not very engaging. It IS, however, very, very slooooow. Now, the last thing I need is to have Dirty Harry upset with me, so Clint, if you’re reading this, please forgive me for what I’m about to say, but I’m not a big fan of this film. And although I’ve been hearing some Oscar buzz and it may get some nominations, I don’t think the public is going to embrace ‘Hereafter’ now, or in the hereafter.
