Gravity (2013)

Gravity tells the story of a space-walk gone horribly wrong. Experienced astronaut Matt Kowalski and Dr Ryan Stone, a medical engineer on her first space-walk, are left stranded alone in space when an accident destroys their shuttle.

This film is all about the direction and the cinematography and from my perspective is the must-see movie of last year. Forget what you think of George Clooney and Sandra Bullock. Forget what you think about movies set in space. Gravity is like nothing you’ve ever seen before.

Ideally, it should have been seen in 3D in the cinema so if you haven’t seen it and you get such an opportunity, take it. Even on a plain old 2D television, however, it is clear to see that Cuarón has created a technical masterpiece.

For anyone who has ever wondered what it would be like to go into space, this is the film for you. From the moment Bullock’s character is sent spinning helplessly away from the Earth, the tension never lets up. Even if the plot has a hole or two, it doesn’t matter. The dizzying effects and masterfully created physics render Gravity a stunning piece of cinema
