I just came back from the IMAX 3D...feeling numb, dizzy, bedazzled, and stupefied.
well, yes..that's exactly what I was feeling and still having those feeling a little bit at the moment as of I am writing this.
Glad to have decided to watch it in IMAX 3D. The sinking feeling of being sucked into the dark space with the blue mother earth underneath or over(?) us was really mind-boggling.
Yup, I think I got to agree to some reviews which stated that 'Gravity' is like Discovery Channel's Space Adventure WITH a disaster.
But, it turned out...the movie is not about disaster, not about astronauts, not about space, not about the satellite debris that initiated all hell broke loose, no...it's simply about the very basic feeling of human's fear in the face of and during coming to terms with danger (or death, for some reason).
What and how would we feel if we know that we're in the grave danger of facing death....out in space...
well, metaphorically speaking, I think --and I am sure most of the audience--would agree....that despite the fact that the backdrop of the movie IS, in fact, in space...it actually LIES within our heart.
I cannot help but thinking to myself...that yes...life is worth-living no matter what.
It's the simplest feeling that makes us 'human'
Gosh...do I wanna watch it again? yes...but not necessarily in IMAX.
Maybe a digital cineplex would be just fine..well...IMAX would definitely a MUST-GO place to experience what Alfonzo Cuaron has brought us.
It happens in our lifetime. right now. not in the far-far-away land or centuries in the future..
nope...it IS about us....through the lenses of Sandra Bullock's Ryan Stone and George Clooney. Well ..those two actors are truly amazing in capturing the imaginative vision of Cuaron.
