A very emotional but underrated British drama.

Understandably, one can totally confuse this British drama for a film about the underwater world and it’s features due to the description of the title (especially the 1999 film Deep Blue Sea), but the nature of the title definitely serves its definitive meaning within the film. Time and time again, we have witnessed these dramas involving traumatised civilians that take us on an emotional and th... read more

A bit boring because I think the rhythm of the movie is very slow. But the ending is touching because my heart really broke when I saw Tom Hiddleston, a fabulous man shouting at Hester (which was like he was shouting directly at me) and I was behaving like Hester once. So, it really touched me.

It’s interesting to watch the 2011 version of Terence Rattigan’s play after having recently watched the 1955 one. Anatole Litvak’s version lacked a personal touch and much insight into Hester’s character, but it contains a great performance from Vivien Leigh. It’s compulsively watchable, but makes an odd decision to film such a quiet, intimate story with widescreen and Technicolor panach... read more

“Great use of colors and lighting, solid acting but uneven story and the acting couldn't save the uninteresting characters they were playing.

“It’s interesting to watch the 2011 version of Terence Rattigan’s play after having recently watched the 1955 one.

It’s compulsively watchable, but makes an odd decision to film such a quiet, intimate story with widescreen and Technicolor panache. Terence Davies made a film that’s equally as great, but also lacking in a few of the same eras. Maybe the problem lies in the material?

Why exactly does Hester throw out her high society marriage to run off with a RAF? The sarcastic answer I want to give is because the RAF is played by Tom Hiddleston, and wouldn’t you runaway with him if you had the chance? But the truth of that m” read more

August Movie Journal - Xanadon't (23 movies items)

" Beautifully shot, well-acted, and painfully slow at times. Now I'm not one to begrudge a movie simply for being slow. But in this case the problem is compounded by a sense of self-importance that left a bad taste in my mouth. At the half-way point I was impressed by a film that reaches into emotionally intimate places that few films of its kind bother to go. By the end I'd decided, "So what?". Too bad."

"06.05 in almost every interview about that movie people call it "a tragic lovestory" and how fatal love can be. but i dont think freddie and hester love each other. freddie survived the second world war as a bomberpilot. he saw so much randon death that now he wants to live life to the fullest. so i think hester is just one aspect of him doing that. and for hester: she wants passion in her life. and she wants to be the most importatn thing in freddies life. she wants to be importatn, she wan"

“Understandably, one can totally confuse this British drama for a film about the underwater world and it’s features due to the description of the title (especially the 1999 film Deep Blue Sea), but the nature of the title definitely serves its definitive meaning within the film. Time and time again, we have witnessed these dramas involving traumatised civilians that take us on an emotional and thought-provoking ride where the occurred events lead to a very tender and important message. The play by dramatist Terrence Ratigan that this is based on has already been adapted once before into a film that starred Vivien Leigh and Kenneth More, but now comes forth a second adaptation of the play.

Although it is a 1950s British drama, the extraordinary title The Deep Blue Sea provides a ” read more

2011 In Film - Best to Worst. (73 movies items)

" One sentence review: Although it does have it's references of "deep blue sea", this will obviously at first be completely misunderstood as a film to do with sea creatures but it's another fantastically executed but EXTREMELY underrated drama with an Oscar-worthy performance from Rachel Weisz and a great performance from Tom Hiddleston and shows us about the consequences and the personal effects of suicide.
