An update on "THX 1138"... But with all the aesthetics (impeccable clothes, sleek hairdos, futuristic spaces and scenarios, framing, colour treatment, soundtrack, etc.) and hotness of the leading couple... I can say this wasn't a delight for my senses. Not the most incredible plot, but who cares?
visually it stands alone very well, but what it overcompensated in aesthetics it lacked in overall plot and structure. (I just feel like this could've been so much more, but it headed down a predictable road imo). great performances by kristen stewart and nicholas hoult though. they're both brilliant in everything they are in!
Beautiful aesthetics and thumbs up for casting Kristen Stewart as an emotionless character, but the movie is soooooo depressing... I felt more joy watching The Schindler's List than this futuristic Romeo & Juliet.
This seems to reflect more our views on machines (and even AI) than what we now know human emotion might be. The premise collapses on its self. It's outdated, like something from the 1940's. Or something about the rise of AI. Neuroscience tells us, for example, that decisions are emotional, not logical. The impulse to act is emotional. Our "machinery" has emotion built in. When you remove it, we malfunction. (*)
very pleasing to the eye: 1. asthetics so on point 2. Kristen's hair.. can it be more perfect? don't think so 3. Kristen herself, I mean come on. I am in love. I kinda knew beforehand that the story would be quite thin, basic. I appreciated the atmosphere, the aesthetics and the actors, so yeah not bad though!
Although it had a very interesting premise and story, I felt frustrated with the decisions of the main characters. It was as if they made those choices to because it would make sense, but to drive the story forward. Perhaps trust is not something they encourage in this future world.
Que treta. Hair-stylists: 5*. Kristen, igual a sempre, sempre perfeita. Tudo muito bonitinho e branquinho (e normativo), mesmo com o inevitável low-budget look. Personagens secundárias irrelevantes. Muito pouco debruçar sobre o universo que estabelece.
