Synopsis: Sandra Bullock is adrift in the Earth's orbit after a routine shuttle mission goes awry in this sensational, ground breaking space odyssey from dir. Alfonso Cuaron.
Aroview: Is GRAVITY the first really new film of the 21st Century? I hazard it may be. It is certainly the first to harness the bleeding edge of the current technologies (performance capture, 3D, sophisticated robotic camera rigs) to serve a story that could only really exist in this form...
What Cuarón has managed here — through a combination of exquisite sound design, near-perfect VFX and his trademark long, fluid takes — is to make you believe. The debates about the science have been going back and forth for a while but the film feels authentic which is the most important thing, right? A simple story, made to look simple with the aid of about a hundred million dollars, GRAVITY is a new benchmark for cinema entertainment. ~ Dan Slevin
