I wasn’t available to see this one the first time it was posted so I’m hoping some other people might still like to see it.
The fate of astronauts marooned in space might seem a familiar plotline, but as conceived by director Cuarón (CHILDREN OF MEN), it becomes a visual magnum opus as well as drama of the highest order.
Clooney is wisecracking space veteran Kowalsky, Bullock the rookie scientist Stone, and in a staggering 13-minute opening take we see her drifting helplessly from a wrecked space shuttle. Clooney is no stranger to the isolation of space – he starred in Soderbergh’s SOLARIS remake – but in GRAVITY his emotional reach extends even further as their battle for survival intensifies, and in her range of reactions to their worsening predicament, Bullock’s performance matches his.
Above all, though, it’s the technical achievements of Cuarón and cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki that will leave you reeling with amazement.
This film has scored 97% on the rotten tomatometer and been given some good reviews http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/film/filmreviews/10271540/Gravity-review.html
