...[a] wondrous package of technological achievement. The human feelings of hopelessness and the instinctual need to exist in the madness of fear and frustration is the calling card that really gives this game-changing gem its captivating conviction
It is complex and profound without being pretentious or pedantic. In fact, if anything, its simplicity highlights the film's depth and study in contrasts. I thought it was a moving, beautiful, unique movie.
The searing action is never repetitive, and every frame is inspired. I'll pay to see this thrilling and wonderfully realized survival adventure again because the visual elements,... made the film taunt with breath-catching tension.
What makes this by far the best film of the year is not the haiku-like storyline or Stone's heart-stopping scramble... but the tears. Gravity is one of the most outrageously emotionally manipulative films I have ever seen.
The hype for Cuarón's ambitious Gravity has been . . . well . . . out of this world. Critics have fallen over themselves praising the film and I went into the theater expecting very big things indeed. I hate to say this, but I didn't love it.
Gravity should be getting award consideration in several categories. Its spectacular cinematography creates a powerful juxtaposition between the sublime beauty of the cosmos and its powerful isolation.
With its themes of spirituality, religion, birth, rebirth and hope, Gravity is a film that will move audiences in different ways. That's the beauty of it; it transcends genres, generations and time, a modern classic.
