I watched Locke (fucking finally!). And I have to say I didn’t know what to expect, actually. Haven’t read much about it ‘cause of possible spoilers that could ruin it for me :P All I knew was “the series of decisions” he had to make (or already made).
I suffered the whole thing in my stomach like it was happening to me! He was able to transmit all of it and it hurted (I felt so sorry for him :’( ) It’s not a happy movie at all, but I really liked it.
The thing about being “solid” so that it makes no difference what others might think about you is totally right. I liked when he said that. I also liked the moment when he smiles, even a little bit. It breaks my heart when he cries… it’s hard to see (but it’s movie!)
So yeah… It was Life. And he faced it.
