“Gravity” Is Remarkable, Stunning
Posted by LaDale Anderson on Oct 6, 2013 - 5:55:02 AM

HOLLYWOOD—There has been a ton of buzz about the sci-fi thriller “Gravity” directed by Alfonso Cuaron.  The film which stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as astronauts lost in space is something that is almost unimaginable at first glance.  To capture such vivid imagery, emotion and an aspect of storytelling that is almost unseen to the human eye is incredible.

 

Both Bullock and Clooney deliver epic performances that are sure to bring in the accolades this awards season, particularly for Bullock who is a revelation as Dr. Ryan Stone.  Bullock delivers an emotionally devastating performance that does not allow the spectator to take their eyes from the screen.  As an actress, she taps in a dark place of hopelessness that any human being could imagine in her dire situation.

Clooney is also remarkable as Matt Kowalski, a veteran astronaut who guides Stone on her first mission. There are two stunning revelations about the picture “Gravity.”  One, space is a scary thing; for centuries we have always wanted to explore what else is out there, but little do we know there are some places that man are not meant to explore.

 

If you think “Alien” was a terrifying picture, “Gravity” will deliver emotions in your stomach that are hard to grasp.  Writer and director Alfonso Cuaron easily conveys a picture of space that has NEVER been captured on film.  It’s only something one could have imagined in their wildest dreams; but to actually see it on the big screen is 10 times more awesome. 

 

Without a doubt, the movie is a visual spectacle.  This is the first time, in a really long time, that I can say, see this movie in 3D for all of its epic glory.  The depth perception and special effects will have viewers chatting for days. For a movie to be centered on two primary characters is a difficult task in itself, but Cuaron balances a space mission gone wrong with a back story of two characters fighting to survive beyond unspeakable odds.  Stone and Kowalski are not in control in space and that is a horrifying feeling; to know that your fate is controlled by something that can’t even be touched. I think any human being put in this situation would be at an utter loss for words.

 

“Gravity” is not a movie to be seen for its visual spectacle. It’s a film to be seen because of its impact on the world of cinema.  It hands down is an emotional journey that I have never seen done in cinema, and I’ve seen a lot of movies.  To encounter a movie that has a visual awe, with a story that will haunt you for days after watching the movie is a feat in itself.
