One of my top 3 films.
Jaws is not about a killer shark. Rather, "[Jaws is] really about a guy who is sort of dealing with his place in the world ? his masculinity, with his family, how he?s gonna, you know, make it work in this new town." JJ Abrams. Though Jaws is not kid friendly, this is not your average "killer animal" film. Great characters. Depth. Humor. Thrills. Adventure.
And that's just the first half of the movie! The entire second half of the film takes place exculsively at sea exploring the dynamic between the 3 heroes. And it works so well. Brody the amateur, Hooper the scientist and Quint the salty sea-dog.
Jaws brings us some of the greatest moments in the history of cinema. A must see. One of my favorite movies. Maybe even my favorite movie.
