Viewing Notes

Impulse grab at my library. Wild that this movie came out this year *and* has the proper 20th Century Fox logo + fanfare. I feel like this was the first movie I saw in theater this year. Seems so long ago.

Still really like this movie… maybe like it even more. The claustrophobic conditions really work on the small screen. Production design is aces and all the actors really put in their effort. I watched all the extras (deleted/extended scenes are p good) including the making-of featurettes. All provide some good insight into the production. I’m really happy they gave Jessica Henwick some interview time b/c I love her (I think she’s the real hero of the movie, too). The whole concept of “dry for wet” is cool to see in practice thru the stages of filmmaking.

I hope this shows up on the sale shelf so I can buy it for a dollar and listen to the commentary track.

Kinda pissed this hasn’t gotten a 4K release. I’ve been wanting to revisit it ever since I saw it!

Yeah that’s a head-scratcher! This would look and sound amazing on 4k UHD.
