Editor’s Note: Every holiday season my favorite seat mate, James Mandell, contributes his year end film round-up. Enjoy!
Stellar indeed, this is some dense story-telling, requiring leaps of quantum faith, but once accomplished, it’s a geek’s play land of possibilities, reminiscent of 2001 but more exciting and challenging to hold onto. The storyline is strident, the character archs overcooked, but the tech and high concept is remarkable and the imagery stunning. Will either leave you cold or wanting to see it again for another shot at catching more of its intense and cranial nuance.
