"After Life" (1998)

Recommended Posts

What happens after you die? In this Japanese film, the first thing you must do is register at the intake desk. Then you're interviewed by a staff member who asks about your most favorite memory. Then the staff recreates that memory and you move on. Or not. What becomes of a person/soul who doesn't select a memory? Or selects a frivolous memory? How long can you stay in limbo at this facility?

I was looking for a complete version of "The Summer Wars," or, failing that, "Tampopo." Submitted for your approval is the movie "Wandafuru Raifu," at a most interesting way station...

Afterlife that includes the vagaries of processing is intriguing for some reason. Maybe because it seems familiar. A great TV show that does it is The Good Place, with Sam Malone and the Veronica Mars girl.
