Harrowing, thoughtful, excellent
This is a well crafted film worthy of attention by our often careless culture. And the trajectory of the life of the central character of this film, a pilot, is as harrowing as the plane crash that finally pushes him to rock bottom. I had to hide my eyes at times, not at the scary flight scenes but at the dooming choices this pilot was making or about to make. It's not quite what I expected, but it lifted me above the clouds. I wasn't expecting and I am still ruminating on aspects of this film and woke up thinking about it this morning. I have a suspicion that the audience I saw it with was not expecting to be confronted with a story about alcoholism and it's capriciousness and that we were all pushed into thinking about how our actions can affect others and their flight paths. See it.
