Quotes

James More: Death. It gets very real when you're watching somebody die in front of you. You're thinking, is this all I am? Is this all I added up to? And all the clichés are true. You're thinking, why now? Why did it have to be... this happen, before I realize what life truly is? It's direct, it's immediate, and it's their whole life exposed to you.

Potentially a great movie but failed.
31 May 2018 | by markbarnerSee all my reviews

All the wonderful talented actors where mocked by the boringness of a thin story and weird long scenes that had no soul to them. I am so sorry this movie has failed. It has some of my favorite actors in it and it was just bad directing and a sad music score. The attempt to bind the story, characters and scenes together with water was awkwardly done and Far fetched. I am sure the script must have been good to lure these talented actors to participate. But movies like this can partially kill an actors career. I hope this is not the case. I felt it was utterly a waste of time with unrealistic conversations that felt misplaced. The movie only had a few good scenes. I am very disappointed and I didn't expect anything crazy anyways.
