Sanctum Should Be A Silent Picture
Based on a true story, the film follows an expedition probing the world's largest unexplored cavern: Esa'ala in Papua New Guinea. Get ready to squirm in your seat. Get ready to feel claustrophic. Do you think people who revere elemental forces are primitives? They're not; they're realists. The rest of us suffer delusions of grandeur. You'll appreciate having space to breathe after this flick.
Seeing women coldly eliminated by such calculating cads was worse for me than seeing them heatedly raped by drooling vikings. I've always stood up for the equal value of men and women, but I don't get too excited about viewing them as androgynous interchangable units like the pieces on a Mister Potato Head, and I'll be damned before I'll watch a woman drown while I'm still breathing and my departed mother is watching me. Gender equality: definitivamente! Gender uniformity: no gracias.
