Living Dark: The Story of Ted the Caver (2013)
Browsing through Amazon Prime, I came across a thumbnail that immediately gave me a visceral reaction. It was a guy squeezing through the tightest cave passage imaginable. Having previously seen and greatly enjoyed another claustrophobic cave movie In Darkness We Fall (La Cueva, 2014) as well as greatly appreciating the classic As Above, So Below (2014) I was intrigued, and had to give it a click.
Now, the thing about Amazon is that they have quite a lot of very low-quality indie movies. As any self-important movie buff I love myself a good indie movie, but some of the stuff there is just really, really indie. I’m talking dialogue getting lost in the background noise due to bad (or nonexistent?) sound editing, acting reminiscent of Finns attempting small talk, and virtually no musical score. It’s therefore good to be a bit cautious when embarking to the unknown that is the Amazon Prime catalogue.
