143) THE ECLIPSE
(2010 dir. Conor McPherson) 2nd Viewing: July 21 2010




Saw this again today. Has to be the most affective ghost story to come around in a while. Emotionally that is. More tragic love story than supernatural thriller. It's eerie at parts but mostly deeply moving. The great Ciarán Hinds is outstanding in the lead. And I can't wait to see what director Conor McPherson does in the future. He's a fascinating storyteller. Great at writing interesting characters. Great with atmopshere...Why are the Irish so damn good at making films evocative of grief?
