    Re: Thirteen Lives

    The boys and the coach sold the rights to their story to Netflix, so this movie was very limited in how much reference they could make to the team as individuals. I haven't seen this movie but apparently one of the boys is named "Chai" in it, which is not really the name of a team member. This film focuses on the divers because they participated in the making of it, and were presumably paid for their cooperation.

    He had a young looking Thai girlfriend/Wife (?) who was actually 40 years old.
    What a vile person.

    A friend saw Thirteen Lives today (on TV) and said it was very good.

    Saw the movie on Amazon today. I enjoyed it, tear jerker. learned a few things over the NOVA film.
    Clearly done from the point of view of the divers.

    I tend to agree. I often see comments on a documentary or news feature on any subject--"I hope somebody makes this into a movie"--and I don't understand it. Why do people prefer to see the story with fictional or composite characters, made-up dialogue, overly dramatized situations, rather than the factual story than can see in the documentary?

    Re: Thirteen Lives

    I would like to see a fictional sequel to the movie where the boys never do escape the cave - and go on to enjoy life as "Caveboys". A Thai version of "Lord of the Rings".

    Notably older in the sequel, the boys could be shown surviving cave-life completely naked - enjoying nonstop sex - without any desire whatsoever to be rescued.

    Now that's a movie I would stand in line for.

    The documentary was informative, the film entertainment. Room for both, in my view.

    Anyway, it makes a change to see a film that isn't about superheroes or heists. And with no "love interest" either....one that can be appreciated by the over-forties!

    a nice fantasy but let's hope it doesn't turn into a Thai Lord of the Flies - a group of schoolboys not in a cave but marooned on an island where "the behaviour of the majority degenerates into savagery" instead of porn

    for nights when you have run out of little blue pills the William Golding book, the 1963 Peter Brook film (both about British schoolboys) and the 1990 Harry Hook film (about American schoolboys) are all worth a try if you haven't already indulged, or had the unexpected pleasure of having the book included in your school English lit reading list!
    I’m nervous now when people cough near me, I would be much more comfortable if they would far cough.

    Wonderful book! Peter Brook's film is memorable, Harry Hook's has been forgotten.
