Walter Mitty | The Quintessence Of Life

I watched a movie from 2013 that stars Ben Stiller as Walter who works for Life Magazine where he is thrown into Adventure. The movie didn’t make much of a splash. The movie is a beautiful piece of cinema. It was shot on film which was excellent. The lenses used work well with natural light. The narrative is Walter who has daydreams of adventure. He is thrown into the wrap-up of Life Magazine and he is in charge of the last image that will be used on the cover which is missing.

Understanding Walter is easy and his progression in the movie and how he changes as the movie progresses and he gets out of his shell and loses the person he was as he finds purpose.

He has issues with being “present”. Just loved this movie. Stiller directed the movie. Cheryl is sweet and she is on my crush list.

Gave it a 9/10
