Life After Beth does its best to take a bite out of the indie scene with its quirky dark humor and horror elements but lacks the balanced tone it needed to rise from its own grave. I think this has a lot to do with Jeff Baena's misguided direction that clearly prevents this dark comedy/drama from hitting most of its satirical marks.Considering they only had 22 days for filming and a relatively small budget, one could say this first-time director played his cards quite well, but no compliments can bury the film's countless flaws. I just wish he had taken better advantage of the talented comedians he had access to, rather than take such a serious approach to the material. The film conveys such a deadpan style in so many of its scenes that I couldn't help but crave that extra comedic relief it often lacked. The film's soundtrack certainly doesn't help with its aggressively eerie beats that often drown out the jokes, creating a strange tonal crisis that kills off the beautifully chaotic tongue-in-cheek moments. It's too bad Beana didn't take notes from Edgar Wright's superior zombie romantic comedy, Shaun of the Dead.Focusing on the actors themselves, Aubrey Plaza's commitment to her role alone creates such a powerful screen presence that's definitely worth seeing despite the previously mentioned shortcomings. Dane DeHaan also brings a genuine approach to an everyday romance pressed against bizarre circumstances. But what truly gives this film enough strength to save itself from complete failure is the strong chemistry the lead actors share on screen as the troubled lovers. Unfortunately their story is cut short with little to no explanation of how their relationship used to be before Beth's unfortunate accident, adding to the weakness of this odd plot. It also makes it a lot harder to identify with how things have changed and/or care about their future outcome.Described as a "rom-com-zom-drom," Life After Beth suffers deeply from its obvious identity crisis but manages to offer just enough fun to validate a passing mark. Just don't expect to be scared or have too many laughs.

Allen G (jp) wrote: Whilst certainly jarring and unsettling due to Wuornos' particularly complex nature, as a documentary, this one is fairly by-the-book and somewhat scattered. There's certainly critique of the American Justice system here but its focus on Wuournos' own words takes away from this a little. I guess it comes down to the line that a documentary filmmaker should take between focussing on its specific case and on the wider implications of it. In this case, I would have liked more of the wider discussion and maybe a little less on the, sometimes difficult, Wuornos. Nonetheless, there's depth aplenty here and it certainly gets you thinking.

David H (au) wrote: Wonderful little film about the old steam 'puffers' that used to ply their trade up and down Scotland's west (and possibly east) coast. It's a slow-burner and none the worse for that. Let the film and the glorious scenery take you away in its own good time, which after all is the central point of the movie, along with a few subtle things to say about brash, fast-paced life. It includes a memorable scene of a Cilidh (gathering, often with music and dance) that is a genuine rarity in its authenticity. Film lovers may be more familiar with better known classics like Whisky Galore (also directed by Alexander MacKendrick) and Powell & Pressburger's I Know Where I'm Going, but The Maggie is not to be dismissed. Just make sure you're not in a rush. Make yourself a drink and put your feet up. Sweetly whimsical, it's a rare gem.
