Jack and Jill — The Deep Blue Sea

28 04 2012

The movie The Deep Blue Sea (not the shark movie, ugh) is out right now, but not a lot of people have heard of it.  It’s a very powerful, understated movie that requires viewers to be patient and analytical of things said, but more importantly, things not said.

It’s not a film for everyone, as it can feel slow to the average short attention-spanned person, but I really liked it.  Here’s one of my favourite scenes, and the first one in the film that made me cry.

Throwaway posts

I think I’m going to add a new category to my blog: Throwaway posts.  These posts are ones I half-heartedly type up before going to bed, so that I’ll have a new post for the day, however lacking in quality or content. Though writing anything, I’ve heard, is a good way of getting your mind going, I can’t help but feel like I’m cheating somehow.

I will say, however, that I watched The Deep Blue Sea today and I cried many times throughout the film, which I rarely do, and even more rarely in theatres.  Just thinking about it again makes me sad…

Here’s the very vague trailer.
