Quirky first film from Diane Keaton which blows a great idea - various inhabitants of America talk about their ideas of death and the after-life - by tarting it up with horrendously pretentious studio sets, unnecessarily silly camera angles, and somewhat over-clever cutting. The use of old film and TV clips, while funny, palls after a while; but most damaging is Keaton's snidely condescending tone towards her manipulated subjects. A cooler, more conventionally objective approach would have produced a far more revealing, humane and witty documentary.
