Critic Reviews for The Deep
Kormakur's film suggests that the enigma of Gulli can somehow be found in his peasant humility, his connections to his community.
Even knowing the outcome ... doesn't diminish the intensity and awe of watching it recreated in this deftly framed docudrama by prodigious Icelandic auteur Kormakur.
Baltasar Kormakur's latest is a touching, low-key depiction of an incident in which a fishing boat sinks a few miles from shore.
Director Baltasar Kormákur filmed on an actual trawler, which he sank, and its authentic-looking scenes will leave you shivering and reaching for a cardy.
While filmed on the sea for the first half, the pic is powerful. Problem is when it goes ashore for the second half it loses some of its power.
Audience Reviews for The Deep
The Deep is probably a movie which will disgust you and make you sea-sick after a point, but at its best it is also a very moving film of ordinary, inexplicable survival.
No clue how this got in my que or how it has a 96% rating as its not really a mind blowing movie. Also very hard to watch half of it as it was graded like mud and is so dark that you cant see half of whats going on or what has happened.
A film of two halves; the first gripping and involving, the second wandering and melancholic, and honestly it's a bit of a slog towards the end (though rooted in a true story, The Deep's sudden change in direction is never really successful). The lead performance is fairly bland but the excellent photography is a huge plus.
