The Deep Blue Sea

By shane212
A very slowly--too slowly--paced film, over-artistically filmed in soft focus and very very darkly lit (all shots in dim interiors and dark nighttime streets). Rachel Weisz' performance was awesome...

Well-acted but melodramatic and unsurprising.

By brunowe
Wife of a judge has an affair with an RAF officer. Rachel Weisz does a good job going through the emotional wringer and she has good support. Simon Russel Beale does a fine job as a judge and one...
