Ivo has written a review of Lady in the Water. I was quite interested to see what he would think upon rewatching the film; the first time he saw it, he hated it. I was surprised by this, as I think it’s an excellent movie, and full of themes and images that Ivo might appreciate. So we talked about it quite a bit, and I came to the conclusion that maybe he’d had the same problem as I’d had with The Matrix Revolutions: going in with the wrong expectations. (I was quite disappointed with The Matrix Revolutions, because I expected sci-fi answers, not philosophical ones. Now that I understand what the movie is actually about, it’s one of my favourites.)
Go ahead, read the review. It’s very interesting. And then rewatch the film.
