A Quiet Place (2018)
This is by far the quietest screening I have attended in a theatre. The dystopian future is held by some brilliant sound design, something that's sort of a cornerstone for a film that has little to no dialogues. The audience I watched with, barely flinched. There were no whispers, murmurs, food crunching or even mobile lights. I was living pin-drop silence for those 90 minutes. .
But that said, the film to me is just this experience. I can't imagine myself liking this film anywhere else other than in a theatre. Well that is not at all saying that the film is bad, but it's just that it might not register as something great in my memory. It is just a basic thriller with weak dialogues and a well-realised scope to go dark and negative with its story and characters. A good, well-made genre film is what it is.
