It's not a pretty picture he paints here. But it makes you want Affleck to keep picking up that brush.

August 15, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Though "Light of My Life" is a well-filmed and occasionally brutally effective piece of work, Affleck dilutes the power of the story with too many self-indulgent, patience-testing scenes.

August 14, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The pace sometimes drags, although I got drawn into the film's slow patient build.

Another dour end-of-the-world epic that fails to live up to the sum of its parts.

Bedtime stories and straightforward conversations on morality and death, including a poignant opening long take revisiting the biblical tale of Noah's ark, exhibit the screenplay's tremendous emotional depth and nuanced humanity.

It's not original, but it is enlivened by some artful touches and two excellent performances.
