'The Grey' confronts death
“The Grey” confronts the audience with that area that rests between life and death. Liam Neeson stars as Ottway, one of seven survivors of a plane crash in the Alaskan wilderness. The survivors are confronted with frigid weather and a lack of food. Then they find out they are being hunted by a pack of wolves that have the aspect of something more.
Each man reaches the conclusion that they are going to die and each confronts that in his own way. There is plenty of conversation about what happens in death and after. All of it is couched in the vernacular of men who work in the oil fields in North Alaska.
“(Death) is the one thing that will come for you,” says Ottway.
Death is the one thing that permeates this movie. It starts with the death of a wolf, a contemplated suicide attempt and the airplane crash. Viewers find themselves confronted with the question of how long should one
fight when death is nigh.
The film contains adult language, plenty of violence and gore. I found the possible survival of the men to be questionable given what they were wearing as they traveled through subzero temperatures in the Alaskan wilderness, but it was interesting to be confronted with the unanswerable question, “Who will you be when death comes?”
