The Waiting (2016)

18 Mar 2016

silly humor

empathy and sympathy

fresh perspective
layered meaning (good for over-thinking/multiple viewing)

immersive atmosphere

expected outcome
acceptable suspense (developments predicted minutes before)
untraceable (natural) acting
noticeable acting


lots of the “real footage” seemed not too genuine.

kinda sort’ve seen it coming. the twist is a bit cliche but nicely done (almost got tears in me eye, reminded me of Up, as every other such couple sequences do nowadays).

good points/message on people are only capable of seeing what they want to see.
