In Children of Men, the astonishing director Alfonso Cuarón has created a menacing future-shock thriller. And his scenes of a sinking England are too plausible for the good of your nerves.

Children of Men is a glorious mess. It's a Frankenstein monster of a movie. Part sci-fi, part thriller, part action genre, part religious allegory, it flays and lumbers after meaning-- sending off occasional sparks of style.
