Alfonso Cuarón संयुक्त राज्य अमरीका, 2006

Stefan Drees's rating of the film Children of Men

Rewatched it again and found it even more uncomfortable than two or ten years ago. There are many noteworthy things in this film. One of them is the documentary perspective with long shots during the Bexhill sequence which makes the war-like scenes so hard to abide. Another one is the brillant use of John Taverner's original music to open spaces of timelessness as counterpoints to the reality.
