Director Richard Keaney Discusses ‘A Quiet Place’ (Watch)

A Quiet Place

After grossing over $100 million at the domestic box office against a $17 million budget in just two weekends, it’s clear that A Quiet Place is a hit.  With a current Rotten Tomatoes score of 95% and continuous praise from seemingly every outlet imaginable, the film is only the beginning for John Krasinski as a director.

While A Quiet Place isn’t Krasinski’s first directorial effort, it’s certainly his most successful, and it shows the potential that he has moving forward.

But what exactly do his peers think about the film?  Lucky for you, I know a guy: Richard Keaney.


From his own work on nuanced, layered works of art, Keaney has a sense for what A Quiet Place is discussing below the surface.  Namely, what it thinks about the state of modern politics.
