Review: The Deep Blue Sea http://wvxu.org/post/review-deep-blue-sea <p>If you miss the days of Merchant-Ivory films, or if you just enjoy a film with a stellar British pedigree, then <em>The Deep Blue Sea</em> is just the ticket.&nbsp; Based on the play by Terence Rattigan, scribe of such well-regarded works as Separate Tables and <em>The Browning Version</em>, <em>The Deep Blue Sea </em>is a tragic drama of love, lust and infidelity. Terence Davies, a director with a short, but highly respected list of credits, including <em>Distant Voices</em>, <em>Still Lives</em>, and <em>The Long Day Closes</em>, lovingly directs <em>The Deep Blue Sea</em>.</p> Fri, 03 Aug 2012 13:53:09 +0000 Larry Thomas 1854 at http://wvxu.org Review: The Deep Blue Sea
