Danny Boyle United States, 2007

Zach Closs's rating of the film Sunshine

Masterful interstellar chiller from Danny Boyle, who demonstrates admirable stylistic restraint and focus. Crackling chemistry among the brilliant, international ensemble cast. Haunting score from Brit electronic group Underworld. Excessively maligned for succumbing to all-out horror in its climax; I see a body-horror payoff earned by the previous hour's suffocating atmosphere and contemplation of mortality.
