Culture Maven review: "Deep Water"


C D K · Culture Maven on Film: "Deep Water"

Film Review & Podcast by c d kaplan

So what we are supposed to have here, in this straight to Hulu release “Deep Water,” is the return of the psychologically dense, erotic thriller.

The release of said Ben Affleck/ Ana de Armas movie coming coincidentally on the 30th anniversary of the premier of a major contribution to that genre, “Basic Instinct.”

The aforementioned married couple in this film adapted from a Patricia Highsmith novel lives in the sumptuous part of New Orleans. They have a young daughter, whom mom pretty much avoids. Because mom drinks and sleeps around.

A lot.

With impunity.

Hubby knows. She knows that he knows. Their friends know. They know their friends know.

So what happens because of all this?

Listen to the podcast above for more details.
