In summary:
I really love this movie - the soundtrack is great, it's got a sense of locality that I adore, and MacIvor's done a great job with thematic construction. I have a personal interest in geography and the representation of place, so there's a lot here for me - issues of island v. mainlander; Carol's constant flittering from property to property and the way she's lost herself among all those empty houses; the relationships of the characters to the iconic piece of property, the Watch. Each of these characters is liminal, struggling to redefine themselves against the past in anticipation of an uncertain future. It's my very, very favorite of the C6d canon.
