"Hey, there's something down here... " -- Holly, 'The Descent'

Film Excellent if spoilery appreciation of horror film The Descent: "The Descent marks the descent, the disintegration, of a friendship. Sarah and Juno might never have been that close, but the ties that once bound them fray in the caves as they drift apart and become victims of the common human frailties of misunderstanding, self-interest, and carelessness. Marshall conveys their differences in simple, brief shots of Juno's unspoken response to Sarah quoting an epigram, of Juno's telling glances at the other women, of Sarah's decision to walk away when Juno apologizes for an earlier failure."
