WHAT’S IT ABOUT: In a world of genetic engineering and genetic “perfection”, a man conceived through the traditional ways of sexual intercourse tries achieve his lifelong dream–to go into space.
WHO’S IN IT: Ethan Hawke, Jude Law, Uma Thurman
WHEN IT CAME OUT: 1997
HOW COME YOU HAVEN’T HEARD OF (OR JUST SEEN) IT: I’m not entirely sure why you haven’t. It’s an exceptional film. You should remedy this. I mean, I didn’t see it for a while because it’s not on every list of “GREATEST SCI-FI MOVIES OF ALL TIME” or whatever. It should be, though. Like I said, it’s an exceptional film.
WHY YOU NEED TO WATCH IT IMMEDIATELY:
- The manpain
- The feeling that you can pretty much do anything you want
- Jude Law’s face
- Gorgeous CGI
- Beautiful sets
- Handsome Ethan Hawke
- It’s a frightening look into a possible future – who doesn’t wanna see that?
- It’s just really pretty. Really, really pretty. And compelling.
