Who knew Krazinsky had this in him? A tightly paced, well thought out, edge-of-your-seat thriller with well defined characters and an emotional core. While nothing here is particularly new, the measure of how much spit-shine Krazinsky puts on the whole thing once assembled would suggest the work of a seasoned directorial veteran. The cast is phenomenal and it's easy to see Blunt (Krazinsky's real life wife) as well as the children, truly believe in the material. A true audience favourite, I've rarely seen viewers respect a film as much as with A Quiet Place... Taking great precautions to not crinkle snacks and disturb the wonderfully suspenseful silences the picture conjures. One row even burst into applause at the film's conclusion and some kid yelled out "best movie ever!" while exiting the theatre's main doors.
An exciting writer/director debut from a creator who has just levelled up my respect for his craft ten fold and definitely one to catch in the cinemas.
