FILM: Alfonso Cuarón’s “Gravity”

I have an intense amount of love for Alfonso Cuarón’s film, “Children of Men“.  The single-shot opening scene alone is so intense, so fully realized, so seemingly real, that it’s hard not to get emotionally involved with the rest of the story. And trust me, you will.  It’s a powerhouse of a film.

Since “Children of Men” (a 2006 film), I’ve been waiting patiently for his next feature film, “Gravity”, and yesterday the first teaser trailer for it dropped. It sure looks like more of the same from him.  Near-futuristic, emotional “what  if?”  themes, over-layed on top of beautifully shot visuals.  I got chills from it. And those last couple of seconds… (gulp!)

Here’s the trailer. And yeah, it’s now officially on my short list…
