  • The film is a striking cinematic tone poem. show more

  • The beautiful misery of The Deep Blue Sea - Terence Davies' crushing adaptation of Terence Rattigan's 1952 play - is almost too much. show more

  • As intensely personal and deeply felt as it is, however, Davies' attempt to breathe new life into Rattigan's 1952 play is a rather bloodless, suffocating thing, lent tragic passion more by its use of Samuel Barber's Violin Concerto than by anything achieved by his star Rachel Weisz and her leading man. show more

    One of the best movies I have ever seen. Tom Hiddleston is the best new actor out there. He has a way of making a movie come to life. A must buy!!!! :)

    Incredibly annoying and pretentious! Husband and I walked out after 15 utterly excruciating minutes and got a refund.

    the dreary story of an early 20th centruy horny housewife has zero relevance in today\'s world. everybody will like weisz\'s performance (she does dark well)--but it won\'t carry this dated piece of \"cine art trash.\" all the baloney about a woman\'s hunger to reach her full erotic potential et. al. may be intellectually touching--but the movie\'s an awful bore!
