Children of Men

Cuarón’s style of photography and propensity for long takes - further displayed in his contribution to Paris, je t’aime the same year - is very deliberate, but there’s no denying the striking and impressive nature of the visuals. The dystopian framework is also essentially familiar, Cuarón tending to belabour the concept at times too - but again, despite there not being the greatest deal of depth behind these two facets, it all remains completely involving and tense throughout its course. A modern success.
