The movie isn't just unpretentious; it's garishly, thrillingly vulgar.

Overwrought and overly facile look at accounts payable in the afterlife.

I am a particular pushover for movies like this, movies that could go on the same list with Rebecca, Wuthering Heights or Vertigo.

A big, convoluted, entertainingly dizzy romantic mystery melodrama. It's also another coup de cinema for Mr. Branagh.

Logic is dull and all that jazz. What isn't dull, though, is the way Branagh as a director attacks this material.
