Alfonso Cuarón United States, 2013

Scott Barley's rating of the film Gravity

From a technical standpoint, the film has moments that feel like a progression in mainstream cinema, recalling the visceral spectacle of Noé's last two features, however the film's myriad of arthritic expositional attempts are downright embarrassing. The only thing I can be thankful for, at least, hopefully, is that in time, this film will set the precedent; ushering in the extreme-long take into the mainstream.
