Movie Review: The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

I planned to watch Walter Mitty alone but the past week’s schedule was quite grueling I ended up watching it with friends, which is still a good thing. Several people had been poking fun at my unusual habit of watching alone, so here you go. I don’t really mind. Anyway, the post’s about Mitty and here’s what I thought about it.

Walter Mitty (Ben Stiller) is a negative assets manager—a photo archivist, in simpler terms—for Life Magazine. The magazine will leave the print industry and will go online, prompting the company to downsize. Having served the magazine for 16 years, Mitty felt secure until of course he misplaces the photo which will be the cover of the final issue. The predicament forces Mitty to turn his daydreams into a real-life adventure in search of the photo’s owner, Sean O’Connell (Sean Penn). From Greenland, to the icy waters of the North, the raging Mount Eyjafjallajökull in Iceland, and the summit of the Himalayas, Mitty has to find the photo interestingly titled “The Quintessence of Life.”

The film did not disappoint. There’s so much beauty and interesting things it was able to offer. For one, I loved how the vivid cinematography sophisticated the whole experience. And then of course, the soundtrack was also amazing. Overall, the film was able to elicit wonderful emotions from the audience, or well from me. In a world where almost everyone settles for the less adventurous and the less risky, Walter Mitty encourages us to plunge again into the unknown, armed with the mighty dreams our minds have often conjured and finally discover the fun of knowing what lies behind those things we could have only imagined.
