Fifth about The Seventh

Gravity (2013)

Gravity: this film tells has, at its core, a simple but very powerful tale of survival. It is, however, the gorgeous execution that raises this to the rank of extraordinaire. Alfonso Cuarón’s style (long, uninterrupted takes; which, I might add, is a personal, well-known bias of mine) lends itself perfectly for the setting. Emmanuel Lubezki’s camerawork (I’ll call it so for simplicity, but the images are a mix of cinematography, editing and special effects) is mind-blowing: the camera dances around the subjects elegantly, never still, and the effect is as immersive as it could be. The sound design completes the verisimilitude. George Clooney and particularly Sandra Bullock showcase the emotions very effectively. This is a very impressive piece of filmmaking.
