A thinker's movie, 10 March 2013
Author: winslowevan from Delaware

This is not a "watcher's" film, by this I simply mean that the viewer must be engaged in the film and actively thinking looking for the exhibitions of the film's theme and meaning; not simply mindless and uninvolved like Die Hard (nothing wrong with Die Hard, its just a different type of movie). The movie, like any other good movie, must be seen more than once to fully grasp the implication of the themes and its deep roots manifesting themselves even in seemingly insignificant details

The beginning is somewhat slow and some of the footage has the skew of a rolling shutter which is hard to correct, it is because of this and the beginning confusion that I did not give the rating of 10/10 (I don't know of any perfect movie that deserves 10/10 anyways).

As the film progresses, however, especially towards the middle the plot as well as the meaning begin to click and the interest peaks highly. The film is full of tension and dark and beautiful imagery which, along with the dialog and plot, creates a deep tension the viewer can feel enabling empathy for the main character Cliff. The tension is not constant and is just the right amount without turning away the audience and the occasional humorous remark breaks the tension in perfect balance. The acting was excellent and better than a number of Hollywood films which helped strengthen the film's integrity and emotions, perhaps only once (if at all) did I feel that an actor did not fully portray realistic feelings and emotions and it had no impact on the story or the theme itself.

After viewing I feel there were many details and symbols I missed, especially in the opening of the film which I eagerly await to interpret with another showing. I believe the first viewing,after my pondering interpretation, will shed new light and interest on the beginning, and the whole film as a whole when viewing the movie a second time.

I didn't expect it from the beginning, but I am in love with "Yes, Your Tide is Cold and Dark Sir"
