A Quiet Place

A Quiet Place ★★★★★

Oh wow. This movie is something.

The importance and use of sound in this film is something unheard-of in the movie industry in my opinion. The way they use it to perfection really took me off guard, I never thought sound could be so much pivotal for a plot. Overall, the story isn't that original (typical monster/survivor movie) but the way it was made and the craft behind it is insanely good: you only need to watch the first 5 minutes of the movie to realize you're watching something special.

The characters have great chemistry (specially the father and the little girl), the attention to subtle details is perfect, it's a somewhat believable monster-story and the pacing of the movie is non-stop suspense, always putting you on the edge of your seat. From the second act forward you don't have time to sigh in relief probably until the end of the movie.

If I had to pick a negative, I would have to say that maybe the last 30 seconds of the film didn't really fit the whole mood of the movie but still it didn't bother me that much.

Hats off to you Mr. John Krasinski.

No doubt, best movie of 2018.
