The folks at Vanity Fair recently posted a great clip of John Krasinski “breaking down” of the earliest scenes of his recent movie, A Quiet Place. The movie really is as good as reviews are saying. I think I had a tense smile on the entire time I was watching it: smiling because I knew I was watching something special but tense because it sucks you in from the very first scene and doesn’t really let you relax until the end.
Not only that, it’s definitely one of the most naturally beautiful movies that I’ve seen in a long time. The locations for the movie are as lush as they are terrifying. And so while sound plays perhaps the most important “character” in the movie, the natural world deserves some real applause, too.
