ben affleck and ana de almas star in this nola-based film noir but it's their house that deserves its very own oscar.
deep water, the hulu film starring ben affleck and ana de armas didn’t receive raving good reviews, but i was intrigued to watch it nonetheless (based on the novel by patricia highsmith, whose books i love), and honestly, i didn’t think it was all that bad. its script goes off the rails and is perhaps utterly implausible, but escapism it was for a little while and i found it entertaining (sans the creepy snails!). but i digress, i’m no movie critic, however, i am a connoisseur of set design. i love an inspiring set and the greek revival home in new orleans where the troubled couple lives in the film is simply stunning. i’d define its design as celebratory decay — a haphazard, ethereal, eclectic mix of old and new that had me rewinding the film for a better look.
