Children of Men

A and I went to see Children of Men today.

It's one of the best movies I've ever seen.

It's a beautiful piece of art. Unrelenting, brutal, dystopic.

There are brilliant touches throughout. The cinematography is remarkable.

There was a moment toward the end of the movie that created an immediacy reminiscent of the opening of Saving Private Ryan. I swear I watched the last 45 minutes covering my head and ducking.

A and I have very different takes on the movie. I viewed it is great art, and he is ruminating about our dystopic future.

Plus ca change . . .
