Gravity is a tense drama that stars Sandra Bullock (Dr. Ryan Stone) as a medical engineer on her first space mission. George Clooney (Matt Kowalski) is the know it all veteran on his final mission. Something happens blah blah blah and everyone is in danger. The plot really isn’t what’s important – this movie is all about the filmmaking. Alfonso Cuarón, cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki, and visual effects artist Tim Webber have created a visual feast.
The way Gravity was shot and edited makes the viewer feel like he or she is on Explorer’s mission right along side the astronauts. In one scene Stone floats through the International Space Station like she is actually weightless. I don’t know how they filmed it and I don’t want to know. I want to believe in the magic of filmmaking. Space one again seems like a wondrous place – the silence of space the canvas of stars a place of endless possibilities.
It’s a must see in 3D and IMAX.
