65 was a bit quiet at the box office, but those who have seen it seemed to enjoy it. It’s a very direct movie and a very safe way to introduce horror elements to younger audiences. It’s a very visual performance and has really great production value. Plus the back-and-forth between Driver and Greenblatt is wonderful. Even though they do not understand each other verbally, they come to understand each other very well and it highlights how much communication really is more nonverbal than verbal.
Seeing the behind the scenes of making this film will surely give a lot of insight on how to tell a story directly without being verbally literal. Plus it is always great to see how they bring dinosaurs to life on the big screen.
