Perfect Sense Reviews
Now, about the film itself... Having only just recently watched the thematically similar, brilliant 'Blindness', I was not expecting Perfect Sense to have any sort of impact on me but good Zeus, it truly left me in jaw-dropping awe.
The bleak premise, the harrowing fear, the scorching anger are all eggshells on humanity's rotting floor -- but they don't come alone. In delicate balance, there is always hope tiptoeing around them, hope and the drive to move forward, maybe on instinct or feigned ignorance perhaps, but it's there, the need to not just survive but experience and live until life is no more.
An eroding world which could have surrendered in anarchy chooses to keep up the fight in structure, instead striving to clad itself with some semblance of normalcy through a bull-willed grip to the familiarity of old habits.
Ultimately, humanity ends in comfort.
Bearing in mind I don't usually go for melodrama -and through the emotive use of music and sound/color play this often borders on beautiful depression- it somehow connected to my every point, and to my every level Perfect Sense made just that; perfect sense.
It was lovely, I loved Eva Green in it & if it's at all possible I loved Ewan McGregor even more, I Absolutely loved all the scenes with Ewan's Bike, Every-Single-One, The Direction & the Narration at the very end was spectacular.
