Aftersun (dir. Charlotte Wells)

my favourite of 2022

By Mesh ToraskarPublished 7 months ago 1 min read
Aftersun trailer

Memories, misunderstood as crystallised time capsules trellising our pasts are anything but.

Real and imagined crudely stitched. Some tactile; others soft as ghosts, likely to morph upon discovery. Both evocative, neither enough to paint someone’s lingering silhouette whole.

Aftersun tries and finds agonising beauty in the futile act of trying.

    Ending of this film stuck with me like an elephant on my chest for around 2 weeks. The power generated in this movie was insane to me. A directorial debut nonetheless. Beautiful film. And a beautiful critique.
