An outrageously intense initial quarter in one long delicious sampling topped by the remaining 75 minutes with breathless excitement in a battle for survival. Alfonso Cuaron bidding on a sci fi adventure that gives the concept of space flight a whole new meaning and I find it hard to imagine that a movie experience can be felt more strongly than this.

Astronauts Ryan Stone and Matt Kowalski is on mission in space . Everything goes according to plan, until suddenly a warning is heard from NASA that debris from a recently exploded Russian satellite is heading toward them at high speed. They barely have time to perceive the warning until the scrap attack and rips Dr. Stone from the station who end up on the operating completely alone in the dark , silent infinity. Kowalski sets out after her in an insane missions and a race against time begins.

The story is actually pretty simple. It is primarily about just survival , which somehow also is the essence of being human. Despite confident output ( we will all die ) , we struggle more or less hopeful and lives on. For the most part . Now you can hardly our everyday survival compared with the struggle that goes on in " Gravity " above the clouds. But still , it is very easy -related , as well as the anxiety and the fear that possibly have to die all alone.

The camera work by Emmanuel Lubezki ( behind the camera also Cuarons " Children of Men " from 2006) is completely unsurpassable . His camera marketing collaborate without friction with the digital technology and provides us with incredibly realistic CGI . The views from up there are just incomparable . There is nothing err with regard to the visual , and I really can not , even in my wildest imagination , to understand how they managed to create such a realistic environment . Let alone how the actors placed in it, without the smallest seam visible anywhere .

When the camera almost weightless keep up with Ryan Stone's rotating out of nowhere, accompanied only by space menacing silence, it becomes extremely nasty. Since fixes his lens designs and crawls tightly close by, all the way through the visor at Stones helmet and gives the most intimate of close-ups. Now to the sound of panicked breathing and the desperate cries for help on the inside. In a single sweep slowly , almost imperceptibly , the camera then gaze , her and it turns out against the looming dark . We see that she see she looks , feels her anxiety and keeps the spirit of pure sympathy as the oxygen levels in the space suit falls.

It's probably the first time I see a film so literally with my whole body and I feel both dizzy and drowsy. It takes a while before I recovered myself afterwards and even longer before I can fully accept gravity and take normal strides out on the street again . So terrible real is the experience.

Sandra Bullock as Dr. Stone does everything right . So much so that I forget that it's Bullock and instead see only a panic ( who can blame her) woman adrift. George Clooney is best George Clooney , but he 's very good at it, so I 'm not complaining.
" Gravity " evokes perhaps no more difficult existential issues , but is a fairly simple and straight told story about life, birth and death. It may at first glance seem well spectacular just to the surface, but at a closer look you can see also there for several grades . The characters are complex and intriguing plot and not a single picture of the road is wasted on non-essentials . The film is a true masterpiece that offers the most entertaining and breathtaking journeys of man today has the ability to go on .
