About a third of the way into this movie I found myself thinking that film has become such a high art form, attracting so much talent the world over, that either we’re going to run out of ideas or our heads are going to explode.
This is the sharpest, tightest, most skillful sci-fi script in memory. And very expertly executed, like a hall of mirrors constructed by NASA.
Add to that performances that are uncanny in their intensity, and the result will live with you for a long, long time. Which was undoubtably writer/director Alex Garland’s goal here. Not just to get under your skin, but inside your mind. And maybe break it open.
