It is very difficult to take a film based on Space sans gimmicks , laser gun wielding characters and keep the audience engaged for about 140 Minutes.
If the story line is about losing oneself cutoff from Communication network from anywhere deep in Space, totally at the mercy of Technology, which can fail against the smallest idiosyncrasies of Nature,,well even imagination is bound to fail.
Yet,Gravity does just that ‘conceptualizing beyond the Human Mind and execution beyond technology, that is Human Creativity plus technology.
One is overwhelmed while rating the film, Rate it the Best for Photography,Special Effects. Editing, Music,Script,Dialogues Acting,Direction,or the Best film of all times in this Genre.
A crew aboard a Mission craft are left stranded in Space because of malfunction and the escape routes are blocked by falling man-made Satellite debris, which cuts off all communications,
How the issue is resolved forms the story.
As I have indicated in my earlier post before viewing the film, one does know how to react when lost in Space when you get disoriented.
What is the frame of reference?
The fear of Death seems trivial when compared to the primordial fear of the vastness of Space.
The film is both psychological and scientific though not a documentary.
The Director steers clear of commercializing the Movie and at the same has not made this a documentary.
The result is a gripping film with a tight script and excellent acting from Sandra Bullock and George Clooney.
The script, what can one say?
One word ‘outstanding’, scientific, early, dry humor breezy, all at the same time.
Ina all a film for the discerning .
Only yesterday I was telling my son that my favorite film on any day on Space is Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind for its original thought on communication with the extra terrestria,l despite the fact that there have been movies on the subject.
Well, now My favorite has changed-Gravity.
Why does the earth look like Milky way Galaxy in one shot?
Why does Gravity does not get mentioned even once in the Movie?
The film seems to be more about Space than gravity?
is this has been named as Gravity because the tag Gravity is more catchy?
