Open Water

I watched Open Water on DVD over the weekend. This was the indie movie set in the Atlantic where a couple go on a diving trip, only to surface and find their boat has returned to port without them. I thought the movie was decent, though nothing to write home about. The ads for the show promoted it as somewhat scary and tense. It wasn't really. It worked more as a vehicle for exploring what catastrophe does to a relationship, as the couple floating in the ocean pretty much have nothing to do besides talk. Throw in a few sharks and drinking salt water when you shouldn't, with the occasional boat passing in the distance or plane flying overhead. It doesn't put in much more plot devices than that sort of thing. Still, not bad. And mercifully short at 81 minutes.
